The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 27 million people will present with some type of cognitive impairment by the year 2050; whether the impairment is developmental, due to normal ageing, or the result of an acquired or progressive disease - the number is growing dramatically. Successful cognitive rehabilitation is crucial to improving a patient s overall quality of life and should be at the heart of any and all intervention programs.
Join Jane Yakel, MS, CCC-SLP, for this informative and interactive seminar recording presenting over 100 evidence-based techniques, strategies, and interventions for all levels of cognitive loss. Whether a patient presents with high-level (mild) cognitive impairments, requiring a cognitive structural change, or low-level (severe) cognitive deficits requiring a skilled enhancement approach, this class offers successful, practical treatment techniques that are easy to implement in any care setting. This seminar recording also emphasizes the importance and effectiveness of creating highly individualized treatment strategies, and provides participants with the needed skills to choose and adapt techniques into tailored, personalized therapy plans. Active case studies are examined, and participants are encouraged during the seminar to design a patient profile with therapy interventions and goal documentation.
- Discuss how to bridge the gap from philosophy to practice, and from paper-pencil therapeutic task to daily functioning activity, by identifying the underpinnings of the different systems and processes of cognition
- Discuss specific Art of Memory techniques and strategies (utilized by World Memory Championship competitors) to design specific therapeutic tasks that can create a structural change in memory
- Identify the critical role that awareness deficits play in contributing to rehabilitation outcomes and discuss the interventions and techniques that facilitate awareness and guide the patient to independent functioning
- Summarize the components of executive functions and discuss how these components are contingent upon other cognitive processes that manifest cognitive and behavioural disorders
- Define step-by-step therapeutic intervention techniques specifically designed for progressive neurological diseases and low-level cognitive patients
- Identify the components of a defendable skilled goal and discuss what medically defines a skilled from a non-skilled intervention
- Evaluate the role of self-efficacy and ownership and the principles needed to have the patient ultimately responsible for the treatment program
