Description

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.

  1. Distinguish between the specific types of attention deficits and discuss therapeutic interventions to ensure effective outcomes.
