WHAT IS ICOMMUNICARE’S RELATIONSHIP CENTERED APHASIA PROGRAM (RCAP)?
ICOMMUNICARE’s relationship centered program is tailored to maximize an individual's communication. A shared decision making approach acknowledges the importance of client goals. This includes more than the relationship between client and clinician in order to promote successful communication along a continuum. RCAP is designed for clients and their care partners who are able to commit to intense rehabilitation so they may find a "new normal" for communication success. RCAP becomes "OUR" program; something shared among everyone involved in the rehabilitation process.
With a focus on the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA), RCAP offers a combination of therapeutic intervention, counseling, and care-partner training. Intensive, interactive sessions with an expert Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) provide communication goals and tools for all language modalities (speaking, writing, reading, understanding). The unique approach is asset-based, empathic, expressive, and relational to optimize success for every client – beyond a traditional therapy setting. Programs include "real-life" opportunities to use communication strengths and gains with a SLP in places of client interest, e.g., coffee shop, hardware store.

Aphasia does not just affect the person who has it. Everyone in the person's life is impacted and it is important to maintain relationships.
