Recent years have seen a proliferation of evidence-based guidelines for cognitive rehabilitation after acquired brain injury (ABI), including rehabilitation for cognitive-communication disorders. In this webinar, we will review current evidence-based practices in intervention for adolescents and adults with ABI, in the acute and chronic stages after ABI.

Learning objectives: 

  1. Summarize current evidence-based intervention principles for adolescents and adults with cognitive-communication disorders after ABI.
  2. Critique your own therapy practice from the perspective of current evidence.
  3. Consider the unique challenges facing S-LPs in acute care and inpatient rehabilitation.

This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs (Category A).
