As therapists, we are often asked to provide skilled cognitive interventions for clients with a range of diagnoses. Addressing these deficits are critical as they impact multiple areas of function, to include communication, safety strategies, activities of daily living and the overall ability to achieve optimal functional independence.
This course was developed to assist rehab professionals with evidence-based interventions to achieve the desired outcomes for a range of cognitive deficits. These strength- based approaches are designed to be practical to include both rehabilitative and compensatory strategies when teaching clients in the areas of different levels of memory, executive function, attention, verbal recall, judgement, and problem solving.
