Emerging evidence highlights the importance of using family-centered approaches (FCA) with individuals who have cognitive-communication challenges resulting from dementia. This mini-seminar will present an overview of FCA in communication disorders in dementia, as well as relevant theoretical constructs and models of care for implementing such approaches in clinical contexts.

This session is rated "Intermediate" which assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.
