Core Concepts in Neurorehabilitation: In four lessons, review how neuroanatomical changes affect both cognition and function, taking into account the extent and type of brain damage as well as the preexisting characteristics, personality, and behavior of the client. Study interventions that reduce the cognitive, functional, and behavioral consequences of neurological injury. Review central nervous system anatomy and systems that, when damaged by dementia, stroke, or TBI, result in behavior changes. Examine evidence supporting specialized intervention programs; evidence suggesting that cognitive disorders influence outcomes in terms of functioning and quality of life; an evidenced-based model that articulates the role of occupational therapy in neurocognitive rehabilitation; the role of habits and routines in daily functioning; best practices within the psychosocial dimension of neurocognitive disability; and much more.

Tramatic Brain Injury Diagnosis-Specific SPCC: In four lessons, identify methods for engaging in client- and family-centered care with clients who have impaired awareness. Learn how activity demands and the environment can be manipulated to obtain a “just-right challenge” for clients during the acute inpatient phase of recovery, consider evidence-based interventions to address motor- and process-skill deficits, and more. Review risk factors for TBI; the clinical significance of underlying brain pathology caused by TBI; appropriate methods for measuring recovery from TBI; and occupational therapy strategies for enhancing recovery from TBI.
