Cognitive- Communication Disorders
Cognitive-Communication Therapy may be indicated for those who have experienced a stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain cancer, or various forms of dementia. Interventions may target orientation, immediate/short-term/long-term memory, planning, and sequencing, organization of thoughts, financial and medication management, initiation, inhibition, insight, basic to complex attention, visuospatial, problem solving, and reasoning skills.
Caregivers also benefit from support and education to help maintain quality of life and independence, avoid burnout, and recognize when transitioning to a further level of care is necessary. Compensatory strategies are commonly beneficial to improve safety and daily functioning.
