Enabling Occupation through the Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive Impairments in Adults
Presented by Debby McQuillen, OT Reg. (Ont)
This 2 day, hands on, workshop will provide occupational therapists with the opportunity to learn and practice functional structured activities used to assess and treat cognition in adults. We will review a number of standardized assessments and identify their strengths and limitations. We will analyze cognitive components including insight, organization, problem solving, attention, memory, flexibility and executive function and discuss how to identify a client’s cognitive strengths, reduce impairment and provide accommodation to enable occupational engagement.
