Module 1 Covers: Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 9 Chapter 1: Overview of Cognitive and Perceptual Rehabilitation Chapter 2: General Conclusions: Evaluations and Interventions for Those Living with Functional Limitations Secondary to Cognitive and Perceptual Impairments Chapter 3: Manging Visual and Spatial Impairments to Optimize Function Chapter 9: Managing Memory Deficits to Optimize Function

By Glen Gillen, EdD, OTR, FAOTA This course utilizes text from the soft back textbook by Glen Gillen, “Cognitive and Perceptual Rehabilitation: Optimizing Function” © 2008. The introductions and the module summaries are adapted from the course textbook. With a renewed focus on function-based assessments and evidence-based interventions, this book includes all the tools you need to make a positive impact on the lives of your patients. This clinical resource summarizes, highlights and constructively critiques the state of cognitive and perceptual rehabilitation. The text helps you enhance the quality of life of your patients by promoting improved performance of necessary and meaningful activities and decreasing participation restrictions.
