Cognitive-communication impairments affecting attention, memory and learning can negatively affect an individual’s quality of life. These impairments can limit social interaction and diminish a person’s ability to assimilate information needed for learning. In order to achieve successful patient outcomes, it is essential that practitioners understand the processes underlying cognitive-communication impairments, choose relevant assessment instruments and apply critical thinking skills when developing interventions.
Join Jane Yakel for this dynamic and informative seminar. Through case studies and interactive learning, Jane reveals the essence of cognitive-communication disorders and offers a neuroscience model used to guide intervention. Relating this model to levels of therapeutic interventions, specific therapy techniques, and individualized strategies, she will provide you with evidence-based approaches to therapy focusing on the key domains of cognitive-communication: attention, memory and executive function. You will leave with effective and practical intervention strategies that can be readily applied to your current patient caseload.
At the completion of this program, you should be able to:
- Distinguish between the specific types of attention deficits and discuss therapeutic interventions to ensure effective outcomes.
- Differentiate between the “stages” and “systems” models of memory and discuss effective treatment strategies for improving memory function.
- Describe the models of care for cognitive rehabilitation with respect to specific diagnoses and rehabilitation settings.
- Distinguish between memory systems and identify appropriate intervention techniques for specific patient diagnoses.
- LExplain executive functions and identify the most effective intervention strategies for specific targeted behaviors.
- List specific techniques and strategies for maximizing brain function and preventing further cognitive decline.
- Implement critical thinking and problemsolving skis to develop highly individualized therapeutic interventions.
- Design individualized and measurable goals for cognitive-communication deficits.
