• Discuss how to bridge the gap from philosophy to practice by moving from paper-pencil therapeutic tasks to daily functioning activities

• Identify the "Levels of Awareness" and discuss intervention techniques that facilitate patient awareness

• Assess principles and techniques that increase a patient's self-efficacy and ownership of his or her treatment program

• Discuss how to incorporate "meaning" into everyday therapeutic tasks, ultimately increasing functional outcome goals

• Examine explicit strategies and techniques that can be applied to create an overall "structural cognitive change" in patients with developmental and/or neurological impairments

• Determine evidence-based techniques, strategies, and interventions for all levels of cognitive deficits

• Summarize the components of a defensible, skilled goal and determine what medically defines a skilled from a non-skilled intervention

<p><b>Patient-Centered Treatment Strategies that Work! </b><br> Approximately 6.5 million people in the United States have an intellectual disability diagnosis and that number is growing dramatically. Whether the impairment is developmental, due to normal aging, or the result of an acquired disorder or progressive disease, the World Health Organization estimates that approximately 27 million people will present with some type of cognitive impairment by the year 2050. Successful cognitive rehabilitation is crucial to improving a patient's overall quality of life and should be at the heart of <i>any</i> and <i>all</i> intervention programs. <br><br> This informative and interactive seminar, led by veteran Speech-Language Pathologist Jane Yakel, presents evidence-based techniques, strategies, and interventions for all levels of cognitive loss. Whether a patient presents with a high-level (mild) cognitive impairment, requiring a cognitive structural change, or a low-level (severe) cognitive deficit, requiring a skilled enhancement approach, this class offers successful, practical treatment techniques easy to implement in any care setting. This seminar also 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 are examined and participants are encouraged in class to design a patient profile with therapy interventions and goal documentation. <br><br> Jane Yakel, M.S., CCC-SLP, is known for bringing years of diversified clinical and educational experience to her presentations and is recognized for her ability to effectively bridge the gap between theory and practice. If you are in the field of helping people learn or re-learn, or are responsible for patient care, this course is not to be missed! </p>
