Objectives
  1. Assess the limitations and strengths of the most commonly used cognitive assessments to inform client’s level of functioning.
  2. Utilize an assessment tool that quickly determines a client’s ability to retain new information.
  3. Implement effective treatment interventions, including Computer-Based Cognitive Training, in the management of memory/cognition decline.
  4. Characterize at least six conditions/co-morbidities that impact cognitive/memory function and design intervention strategies that with remediation, may lead to an improvement in cognition/memory ability.
  5. Categorize normal vs. abnormal cognitive/memory deficits and implement appropriate interventions
  6. Implement effective functional intervention strategies that will have an impact on a client’s functional cognitive/memory status as well as ADL/IADL independence
