A good intro to cog therapy which I'm not very familiar with

Reinforced the use of cognitive therapy approach with different populations. Many similarities to treatment of students with autism.
Review by: Kinsey on March 29, 2015
The subject matter, strategy development tips, child friendly ways to discuss attention and deficits, case examples
Review by: Griffin on March 26, 2015
Provided same strategies I've used in the past for TBI adults, but in a kid-friendly manner, which has always been difficult for me to do.
Review by: Abby on March 16, 2015
Practical strategies and examples for using cognitive therapy.
Review by: Randi on March 9, 2015
The information presented is practical and I can use some of the strategies with my current client.
Review by: Thelma on March 8, 2015
The three pronged approach is a great strategy not only for clients with ABI but can be applied with modifications to other areas of clinical intervention. I weep idly the names given to strategies ie "blinder focus" and "highway attention".
Review by: Rona on February 23, 2015
Very very insightful information from a pediatric perspective
Review by: Kim on February 17, 2015
Well organized. Meaningful examples that helped explain process.
Review by: Amanda on February 17, 2015
The article was informative. SLP's have been overlooked in providing therapy for TBI patients in the armed forces and this provides relevant research references to support our role in therapy.
Review by: Cindy on January 26, 2015
Great reminders about being therapeutic "educators" & "detectives." Great clinical application throughout with excellent research data to support cognitive-rehab. thank you!
Review by: Jacqueline on January 9, 2015
I loved her teaching style. She was great at explaining things. I also loved her examples and how she explains her own practice with the concepts.
Review by: Janice on January 5, 2015
Cognitive rehabilitation is a big part of what I do. I appreciate any and all information that will help me better serve my patients.
Review by: Kim-Rae on January 2, 2015
The presentation of intervention ideas and the integration of the individuality of the client into the creation of the format for intervention influences directly the outcome of the success of the treatment plan and the design of the augmentative devices or assistance suggested for the patients.
Review by: Sandra on December 31, 2014

Well organized information on all aspects of cognitive support - education, functional goals, stimulation and compensatory strategies.
Review by: Susan on November 3, 2014
This is an outstanding course. Not only does it provide a solid and fascinating theoretical basis for intervention with a challenging population, but it includes several specific strategies (sometimes complete with graphics!) that are highly practical with a range of clients.
Review by: Suzan on October 31, 2014

Review by: Karen on July 9, 2014
Presenter is so very well informed from her time serving this population, and she presents a wealth of information in a well organized manner. She comes right out and says what she is covering and not.
Review by: Jennifer on June 22, 2014
Clear and concise information with practical examples to demonstrate how to apply it in a real setting with a variety of age groups.
Review by: Marilyn Jo on June 22, 2014
I have so many young clients, some with ABI, but mostly individuals with learning disabilities, that I am anxious to initiate strategies I have learned in this course. I have always felt the idea of "ownership" in your therapy is very important, but have not been able to find a successful way to involve my clients, especially the very young ones, in identifying their deficits and the possible outcomes of those deficits, as well as coming up with their own strategies for addressing those goals. Thank you for a most enlightening course.
Review by: Heather on June 9, 2014
Clear presentation with take away strategies and recommended reading.
Review by: Nancy on June 6, 2014
The strategies and examples were appreciated and meaningful
