The principles of neuroplasticity demonstrate that learning, experience and more intensive training results in increased plasticity. Technological advancements have allowed us to deliver treatment remotely and provide an opportunity for clients to practice more intensely and consistently than what is typical in weekly/biweekly visits to a clinical location. This interactive presentation will show how Constant Therapy, an evidence-based, mobile application, can be effectively used to supplement treatment in the clinic. Constant Therapy is a personalized, continuous treatment tool for people with cognitive, language, communication and learning impairments being used by clinicians across various clinical settings and at home by clients. Participants will learn how to deliver, monitor and analyze treatment using Constant Therapy. The benefits of using technology and home practice to maximize treatment outcomes will be discussed. Case studies, clinician/client perspectives and outcomes data will be presented to support the value of this software platform.
