This course will outline the differences between normal aging and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Diagnostic criteria of MCI will be discussed as well as the most contemporary directions for assessment and treatment. Review of the current literature provides support with regard to detecting cognitive decline in its earliest stages thus allowing us to advocate for the earliest and most efficacious treatment.
the presentor was knowledgeable of her material. She was clear, concise and easy to follow. I learned that MCI could be a predictor of AD, the differences between normal aging cognitive decline and MCI. All very helpful to me as an SLP and daughter of an aging parent. THank you for always choosing great presentors!
I really enjoyed the interaction with the professor and the thought it gave a good overview as well as some specifics to research more, tests to utilze tomorrow and education tools to help my patients and families.
