Cognitive Rehabilitation: Evidence-backed Treatment Frameworks and Therapy Approaches that Promote Functional Change in Persons with Brain Injury
McKay Moore Sohlberg, PhD, CCC-SLP, HEDCO Endowed Professor, University of Oregon
Tuesday, February 7, 2023. 7 to 8:30 p.m. EST
Cognitive rehabilitation after brain injury is arguably one of the most complex forms of rehabilitation. This presentation focuses on describing evidence-backed cognitive rehabilitation practices that have the potential to enhance individual function and quality of life. It includes frameworks that guide the clinical processes for selecting goals and review of two treatment approaches, metacognitive strategy training and attention training as well as associated measurement plans for managing cognitive changes following brain injury. Specification of the treatment ingredients inherent in these two treatment approaches will be detailed along with illustrative client profiles.
(1) describe the following models that guide the cognitive rehabilitation process: (a) PIE clinical process and (b) Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System (RTSS).
(2) apply these treatment models to the treatment of metacognitive strategy training for individuals with memory and executive function impairments following brain injury.
(3) apply these treatment models to attention training for individuals with brain injury.

Description: The African Neuropsychological Battery (ANB) was developed to be a culturally and linguistically appropriate battery of tests for diagnosing cognitive disorders resulting from neurological diseases in sub-Saharan African communities, both living on the continent and immigrating to the U.S. The diversity of these populations poses a normative and interpretative challenge which is slowly being addressed as research using the test battery expands. This lecture will describe the tests comprising the ANB and cover available norms, and research on reliability and validity. A case example will be used to introduce guidelines for how the battery may be employed with underserved African immigrant populations living in the U.S.

Description: In this webinar, presenters will discuss their expertise in diagnosing and managing long COVID in children and adolescents. They will discuss the brief, flexible battery of cognitive tests they utilize in their Pediatric Post COVID-19 Rehabilitation Clinic at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and the most common cognitive impairments children exhibit on formal testing.
