Sepcot contains activities which help people with aphasia. It applies to speech and language therapists for the diagnosis and therapy of patients, but can also be used with guidance by the aphasic individuals who confront difficulties in comprehending and producing words and sentences due to neurological damage or developmental disorder. The objective is to encourage these people to clarify and use the semantic and syntactic features of reversible active sentences.

2. Comprehension of thematic and syntactic roles
3. Verb comprehension
4. Event comprehension
