In this webinar, we will break down what it means to be person-centered and functional when assessing and treating cognitive disorders caused by stroke and other brain injuries. By using real-life case examples, attendees will learn to evaluate cognition outside of the typically used standardized assessments, write meaningful and measurable goals, and provide evidence-based cognitive therapy while integrating personally relevant stimuli and scenarios.
