Evaluation and treatment of cognitive deficits can often be some of the most challenging diagnoses to address because of what seems to be infinite variables. This course focuses on the many factors associated with learning for the cognitively impaired patients who suffer from head injuries, stroke and dementia. Fundamental information includes anatomy and physiology of cognition, clinical neurotransmitters that affect cognition, different types of memory, medications that affect cognition and evidence-based practice access. The instructor will also address cognitive evaluations, goal writing, environmental adaptations, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and the MCI training program. Specific direct cognitive interventions to improve attention, memory, executive function, and visual-spatial functions will be discussed in detail. The importance of correct diagnosis and staging will be emphasized along with staging training. This course, taught by one of the great experts in the field, will help you to narrow your plan to deliver the best patient-specific cognitive rehabilitation care.

    "I love the intent the presenter has with providing better memory care units and education to those working in the field. Presenter was a little hard to follow at times and I had a hard time understanding what he was talking about sometimes. A little confusing. But overall, enjoyed it and learned from it. Thanks!"

    "I was very happy with the fact that this course provided functional, therapeutic activities. Often these conferences spend to much time at the beginning running out of time for the functional pieces therapists can use. Thank you!"

    - Live Streaming or Studio Audience, FL / Oct 2018

    "I think the course could be improved by including more case studies. I also appreciate it when lecturers do not just feed you information to memorize but rather have you think for yourself and then provide feedback. Some parts of the course were more interactive, which I appreciated. I do think the course was well-organized and that the presenter's slides contained just the right amount of information."
