Melissa Kreuder, M.A., CCC-SLP, Immediate Past President


All clinical SLPs know the importance of functional evidence based cognitive therapy. Unfortunately, we may not have the time, resources, or energy to read the current research and design creative cognitive tasks. Let’s focus on the clients, incorporate functional tasks, and practice strategies in real life contexts. I am opening my functional cognitive toolbox and sharing my evidenced based tasks.

She also has 12 years experience working as a clinical educator and adjunct instructor at Molloy College and Adelphi University. She has extensive experience treating adult patients in a variety of settings including homecare, subacute, skilled nursing, and private practice.
