Cognitive Rehabilitation: Assessment and Intervention Strategies

PART I: Cognitive Perceptual Deficits: Assessment Tools and Performance Based Measures

This workshop offered on Day 1 will provide therapists with the ability to analyze and interpret task errors observed during IADL performance and select or choose the most appropriate assessment tools and outcome measures. An in depth review of executive function (EF) components and the interdependence of EF with other cognitive perceptual domains will provide a foundation for interpretation of performance errors. Different assessment methods will be reviewed with a focus on executive function and recently developed performance based measures. Evaluations that include standardized rating scales of awareness, everyday behaviors, cognitive screenings, IADL, participation measures and specific cognitive perceptual tests will be discussed along with general implications for treatment.

PART II: An Overview of Cognitive Intervention Methods for Optimizing Function

This workshop offered on Day 2 will provide a broad overview of different methods that can be used to promote and enhance cognitive function and participation in everyday activities. Interventions such as errorless learning, task and environmental adaptations, use of everyday technology, remediation and emerging technologies will be discussed in the context of rehabilitation and evidence based practice. The afternoon will focus on use of a metacognitive strategy approach. Case examples and videos will show how repeated experiences with a range of activities that present common cognitive challenges provide clients with the opportunity to self-discover patterns of performance errors, anticipate activity conditions that present difficulties, and practice similar strategies across different tasks. Clinical examples and applications will focus on adults with acquired brain injury, however implications for a wide range of populations will be discussed.
