Clients with traumatic brain injuries, strokes, multiple sclerosis, ADHD, chronic fatigue, Chemobrain, lupus and other conditions typically face challenges in memory, organization, executive functioning, energy, goal-setting/motivation and self-regulation. Training patients in how to use smartphone and tablet apps improves independence by addressing all these areas of cognitive challenge in a manner that is convenient and non-stigmatizing. See demonstrations of the six apps that can be used to compensate for the majority of cognitive deficits experienced at work, home and school and learn how you can use them yourself in the rehabilitation process. Training will focus on six apps recommended to address note taking, brainstorming/organization, goal-setting, calendaring, and time/energy management, and applying cognitive compensatory strategies. You will learn how these apps can be personalized for your individual patients’ use and the best methods for training patients in how to use them in inpatient, outpatient, transitional and vocational rehabilitation settings.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
- Describe how apps can be used in the cognitive rehabilitation process.
- Identify at least three different ways that smart device apps can be used to compensate for cognitive deficits.
- Identify at least three different ways that smart device apps can be used in energy management for patients with fatigue.
- Identify at least three apps that have been shown to be effective in compensating for cognitive deficits.
