Description

Cognition is the mental process of knowing, and/or that which comes to be known through awareness, perception, knowledge and reasoning. Loss of cognitive abilities is on the rise in the United States, with approximately 6.5 million people diagnosed with an intellectual disability. Therefore, Cognitive Rehabilitation is, and should be, the heart of any and all intervention programs.

This informative and interactive seminar presents over 100 evidence-based techniques, strategies, interventions and approaches and includes discussion on how to modify the techniques to highly individualize therapy plans for the patient. Active case studies are examined and participants are encouraged to design a patient profile with therapy interventions and goal documentation. The course equips therapist and/or caregiver to take home and implement evidence-based interventions that are successful immediately.

Jane Yakel brings years of diversified clinical and educational experience to her presentations and is known for her ability to bridge the gap between theory and practice effectively. If you are in the field of helping people learn, re-learn or are responsible for patient care, this course is for you!
