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 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.

I work with middle school students with language and other varying deficits. It is hard to get them to buy into what I'm trying to do. I see a lot of wondering attention and if I can give them strategies to use I would love to. That's why this course is so helpful to me.

Review by: Beth on March 21, 2013
Great and specific examples. Good evidence-based research references to support cognititive rehabilitation.
Review by: Krysta on March 20, 2013
Although the 'correct' answer to number nine was identified as "highway attention" rather than "highway concentration" that was on the answer sheet. I did feel that "Laser focus" could also have been used as a child friendly term. This made that item a bit confusing. However, I LOVED this course! She is has great examples. It was also organized very well and was pleasant to read. I really enjoyed it. My rating did decrease secondary to wording of question number 9.
Review by: Jill on February 12, 2013

It is a course that addresses function & with so many service men and women coming back with TBI we will need to be better able to assist them with the transition.
