The Adler Center was founded by Mike and Elaine Adler after Mike had a stroke and discovered that limited therapy and support were available to him for the communication problems he experienced. The Adler Aphasia Center is committed the life participation approach, and provides programs and training for PWAs and their family members and caregivers. It also includes a research program, one goal of which is to demonstrate the effectiveness of its approach. In addition, the Adler Aphasia Center provides training for speech language pathologists, medical doctors and nurses, and emergency first responders.
These files are from 6 participants who underwent script training. The scripts were individualized for each participant. Each participant has files from baseline and post-treatment (final) sessions. The filenames are coded by participant number, script number, and session ID (baseline or final) and #.
Example: P3S3B2 = Participant 3, Script 3, Baseline session 2
Each model script used in treatment is available as a CHAT file but without any accompanying media file. The filenames for the model scripts includes the word "script" -- e.g., P3S3_script.cha .
