The Three Essential Components of Rehabilitation
Attention, memory, and executive functions are the most commonly reported problems associated with neurological insults whether the impairment is secondary to injury, disease, or a disorder. Neurological impairments decrease one's ability to assimilate information needed for learning; they can isolate and/or limit social interactions; and they significantly decrease one’s overall quality of life. The full spectrum of neurological impairments affects a person cognitively, physically, emotionally, socially, and functionally. Since patients are diverse in etiology, pathology, and functional abilities, understanding the processes underlying cognitive-communication impairments is absolutely crucial. Choosing relevant assessment instruments and learning to think critically when developing effective intervention techniques is paramount for successful outcomes.
In this dynamic program, rich with case studies and interactive learning, Jane Yakel, MS, CCC-SLP, reveals the essence of cognitive-communication disorders and offers a neuroscience model used to guide intervention. Relating this model to frequently used assessment measures/instruments, Jane will provide you with innovative and evidence-based approaches to therapy and intervention techniques focusing on the three key domains of cognitive communication: attention, memory, and executive function. The "neuroscience systems" models of memory will also be discussed in relation to areas of cognitive breakdown. Don't miss this unique opportunity to enhance your practice with intervention strategies that can be applied immediately to your current caseload.
