Participants learn about cognitive rehabilitation and its various components; the stages of learning applied to home, school, and work; the concept of cognitive fatigue and its impact on productivity, the issues associated with executive function (e.g., decision-making, organization, etc.) and the stages of the memory process. Practical strategies will be provided to address each of the challenges referenced in the series.
After participating in the webinar series, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the components of cognitive rehabilitation and their relation to daily life.
2. Apply the 4 stages of learning to a personal experience.
3. Describe three strategies for dealing with cognitive fatigue.
4. Describe at least three skills associated with executive functioning.
5. Explain the stages of the memory process.
