  • Attention Skills
  • Executive Skills
  • Memory Skills
  • Visuospatial Skills
  • Problem Solving Skills
  • Communication Skill

 

Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy is designed to focus primarily on one aspect of an individual's rehabilitation treatment; cognitive skills enhancement. The purpose of cognitive rehabilitation therapy is to help an individual acquire the highest level of cognitive functioning and functional independence as possible. This is best accomplished through treatment programs, provided by a licensed and/or certified therapist, who utilizes retraining strategies, teaching the use of compensatory skills (for areas not amenable to retraining), counseling, environmental modifications, incorporating the services of educational and vocational training and following up on patients as they go into their next level of placement, be it work, school or living at home.  Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy is a vital part of the treatment program.  Therapy conducted with cog rehabilitation therapy centers around the person's thinking, attention, perception, memory, problem solving and decision making skills. With hard and dedicated work from the patient, significant improvement in cognitive functioning can be achieved that can lead to significant improvement in daily functioning and meaningful participation in  activities of daily living.
