Full Description

This comprehensive therapy tool kit features a hands-on interactive approach to learning to help rehabilitate individuals who have sustained a stroke, traumatic brain injury, cranial resection, tumor, or degenerative conditions such as dementia, ALS, or multiple sclerosis. It also may aid adolescents with developmental challenges by providing functional and independent life skills training.

The kit can be used in a one-on-one or group setting. It targets five major areas of cognition:

1) orientation;

2) attention and scanning;

3) memory;

4) receptive and expressive language;

5) reasoning and problem solving.

Research shows that with early intervention, speech- language-cognitive rehabilitation can substantially help people achieve their best possible long-term outcomes. Incorporating a multisensory (auditory, visual and tactile) approach such as this is generally recognized as the most effective treatment therapy for learning difficulties. The peer reviewed and tested materials are designed to stimulate minds of individuals and provide the necessary support to foster independence.

The SR-Cognition Tool Kit can be used in many settings including hospitals and rehabilitation programs, out-patient services, home care and private practitioners.
