Workshop Coordinator

Emily Santamarina, M.A., CCC-SLP, Director of Speech-Language Pathology


This session will discuss how you can implement functional cognitive therapy for all age groups. Strategies, tangible examples, and evidence based cognitive research will be explored. Impaired cognitive skills resulting from traumatic brain injuries can have long term challenges on children, adolescents, and adults. The cognitive deficits can affect their functional ADLs, communication skills, and the ability to appropriately reengage into society. These individuals need the support of their family, friends, and therapists to help them along the way. Speech-language pathologists need to provide successful strategies, functional therapy, and optimize their overall goals. In this session, we will discuss the components of cognition that are challenged by various traumatic brain injuries.
