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.
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 regaining speech is not a "use it or lose it" situation, rather it is "use it and improve it." Our members prove this every day.
SCC stands for Stroke Comeback Center. It also stands for:
|Support||We believe that strokes happen to the entire family. We offer services and support to the entire family through ongoing programs, our resource center and our day-to-day interactions.|
|Communication||All of our programs help survivors and their families improve communication. Whether a goal is to return to work, give a public presentation, tell a joke, order from a menu, or tell your friends and family that you love them, our groups and use of technology help people with aphasia 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.|
