Conference Summary

Cognitive and Perceptual Rehab Module 2: Apraxia, Unilateral Neglect, Agnosia, Attention Deficits is organized by HomeCEU. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 10 Contact Hours.

Target Audience: 
Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapist Assistants

This course utilizes text from the soft back textbook by Glen Gillen, “Cognitive and Perceptual Rehabilitation: Optimizing Function” © 2008. The introductions and the module summaries are adapted from the course textbook. With a renewed focus on function-based assessments and evidence-based interventions, this book includes all the tools you need to make a positive impact on the lives of your patients. This clinical resource summarizes, highlights and constructively critiques the state of cognitive and perceptual rehabilitation. The text helps you enhance the quality of life of your patients by promoting improved performance of necessary and meaningful activities and decreasing participation restrictions.

Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study cognitive and perceptual rehabilitation for occupational therapists to optimize function.
