Statement of Need and Target Audience
Educational opportunities that promote evidence-based interventions for cognitive rehabilitation are needed by clinicians to provide optimum care for individuals with brain injury. ACRM Cognitive Rehabilitation Training provides such an opportunity by presenting evidence-based standards and guidelines for clinical practice and translating them into step-by-step procedures for use by clinicians. The interventions described can be readily used by occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals.

Learning Objectives
To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:

1. Use a decision-tree to assist in determining which type of cognitive rehabilitation to implement.
2. Describe techniques for improving attention and the steps involved in carrying out treatments.
3. Identify the general guidelines for the use of external memory strategies.
4. Describe a general algorithm and conceptual framework for structuring interventions for awareness, executive functioning, and behavioral / emotional self-regulation.
5. Discuss the evidence concerning the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation in the selection and implementation of specific, individualized interventions for cognitive disability.

Cancellation Policy

Once you’ve started the course, there will be no refund available. In the event that ACRM must cancel the on-line course, all registration fees will be fully refunded.
