This webinar will focus on evidence-based interventions for cognitive skills, addressing methodology for direct practice and strategies for long-term retention. We will begin with a review of neuroscience research on human brain organization of cognitive functions and then discuss evidence-based research on how those capacities develop in children and are rehabilitated in adults. The webinar will focus on best practices for habilitation and rehabilitation of cognitive regulatory executive functions. This content is designed for clinical application by speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists who work with children or adults for whom cognitive issues interfere with long-term treatment outcomes. This course is specifically designed to expand the therapeutic knowledge base to include evidence-based approaches that enhance regulatory auditory, visual, and motor executive skills, including working memory, organization, problem-solving, and cognitive flexibility.

1. Overview of Cognitive Factors in Learning and Effective Neurorehabilitation

This chapter will review the umbrella model of cognitive regulatory capacities, including top-down components of self-regulation, organization, and problem-solving, as well as bottom-up components of sensory processing capacities. The capacities will be defined, and the neurological organization and development will be reviewed.

2. Neuroplasticity of Cognitive Functions: Maturation and Recovery Processes in Children and Adults

This chapter will review research on maturation of cognitive capacities, including attention, inhibition, working memory, organization, problem-solving, and cognitive flexibility. It will also cover impairments associated with stroke and brain injury and known recovery processes.

3. Therapeutic Intervention of Cognitive Skills in Children and Adults

This chapter will review evidence-based interventions for fostering rehabilitation of adults. Access to free internet resources will also be provided.

4. Question and Answer Session

In this segment, Martha will answer your questions from the webinar in a question and answer session.
