Statement of Need & Target Audience
Educational opportunities that promote evidence-based interventions for cognitive rehabilitation are needed by clinicians in order to provide optimum care for individuals with brain injury.
ACRM Cognitive Rehabilitation Training provides such an opportunity by presenting evidence-based standards and guidelines for clinical practice and translating them into step-by-step procedures for use by clinicians. The interventions described can be readily used by occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals.
To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:
- Use a decision-tree to assist in determining which type of cognitive rehabilitation to implement.
- Describe techniques for improving attention and the steps involved in carrying out treatments.
- Identify the general guidelines for the use of external memory strategies.
- Describe a general algorithm and conceptual framework for structuring interventions for awareness, executive functioning and behavioral / emotional self-regulation.
- Discuss the evidence concerning the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation in the selection and implementation of specific, individualized interventions for cognitive disability.

KUDOS FOR COGNITIVE REHABILITATION TRAINING
- "As a PTA student with a desire to specialize in neuro rehab, I wanted to attend this course to learn how to incorporate cognitive improvements in my treatments, as well as with my son who suffers from executive skills dysfunction. I found the information to be very informative both with my patients and my son. The speakers were very knowledgeable and open to questions at any time. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting more help and ideas in treatments for their patients regardless of an OT, SLP, PTA, or a parent. Thank you very much for this opportunity. My son and patients will forever benefit from your willingness to share your work, research, and ideas." —Aliesha Bell, student PTA
- "This course gave me the evidence-based material I need to address functional cognitive strategies with patients and staff members." —Ann Benson, MS, CCC-SLP
- "This course gives a concise overview of the evidence base supporting cognitive rehabilitation therapy, and incorporates case studies to assist the learner in applying valuable therapeutic techniques to improve cognitive skills and attain functional goals." —Lane A. Sidebottom, PT, DHS, CPCRT
- "Absolutely excellent. Thank you for making the slides available. Whatever helps us bridge the gap between research and the nuts and bolts of implementing it in treatment is very helpful."
- "I like the examples in Dr. Cicerone's presentation; the case studies were great. Some people seem to still get stuck on making the diagnosis and getting testing done. Dr. Cicerone did great explaining why the focus of treatment should be on function of the individual."
- "It was an honor to have Drs. Cicerone and Gordon present for further rationale and application of the Cognitive Rehabilitation Manual ...THANK YOU!"
