The United States is facing a situation without precedent: more than 16 million people are living with cognitive impairments and the World-Health Organization estimates that the number will increase to over 30 million by the year 2050, with fewer and fewer people available to care for them. Successful cognitive rehabilitation is crucial to improving overall quality of life—for the patient, family, and caregiver.
In this innovative recording, you will receive instruction in 101 evidence-based techniques, strategies and interventions for all levels of cognitive impairment. Whether a patient presents with a mild or severe cognitive impairment, this seminar teaches which approach to take and which avenue of interventions to pursue. You will be presented with techniques that will change the brain’s neuroplasticity, as well as offer compensatory strategies, and/or enhance a patient’s procedure memory. This recording emphasizes the importance and effectiveness of creating highly individualized treatment strategies and provides attendees with the needed skills to choose and adapt techniques into tailored, personalized therapy plans. Active case studies will be examined and participants will learn to design a patient profile with therapy interventions and goal documentation.
