Visual Supports and Dementia: Facilitating Interaction and Participation

Course: #6985 Level: Intermediate1 Hour 96 Reviews

People with dementia experience difficulties with memory, communication, and participation in everyday activities. When these same characteristics are seen in individuals with different diagnoses (e.g., Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Aphasia, Traumatic Brain Injury, and ALS) professionals are quick to consider the use of visual supports. This course will provide SLPs with both the research base and practical examples for introducing many forms of visual support to their clients with dementia.
