Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), in-person classes at the Stroke Comeback Center (in Vienna and Rockville) are suspended until further notice. However, our Virtual Programs are thriving! Check out our virtual programs under our "Programs" tab.
Mission and Philosophy
Our mission? To provide ongoing and personally meaningful programs within a supportive and peer-driven environment that is affordable for all stroke and brain trauma survivors, enabling them to achieve their maximum potential.
|Our approach:||a Life Participation Approach to Aphasia – LPAA SCC does everything it can to assist survivors and their families offering a path that allows them to re-engage in life. We do this with the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia: everyone affected by aphasia is entitled to service, at all stages of recovery, and success is measured by overcoming personal and environmental barriers. We believe that all survivors deserve a community that respects and supports them.|
|Our philosophy:||SCC stands for Stroke Comeback Center. It also stands for:|
|Support||We believe that strokes happen to the entire family. We offer support to the entire family through ongoing programs, our resource center and our day-to-day interactions.|
|Confidence||We have found that one of the primary advantages of joining our community is improved confidence: confidence in all aspects of recovery. Whether a goal is to return to work, take a walk, give a public presentation, tell a joke, or tell your friends and family that you love them, our classes and use of technology give survivors the confidence to meet their personal goals.|
|Community||All of our services are offered at the Center, a place for survivors and their families; a place where people with aphasia can communicate with peers who share their experiences and needs; a place that encourages self-sufficiency and independence; a home away from home.|
