Executive function and occupational therapy: An evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of pediatric clients/patients with brain injuries (Part 2)
Register online by Jan 9, 2018 - 01/16/2018
Presenters: Heather Forst and Lisa Rounds
Children and youth with brain injuries frequently present difficulties with executive function. Occupational therapists have a unique role in assisting with the reintegration of children with executive function deficits into school, sports and their recreational activities. Part 2 of this two-part webinar series will examine screening and assessment tools useful in the evaluation of pediatric clients/patients with cognitive performance deficits. Case studies and video clips will also be reviewed to provide participants a framework to support the identification of executive function deficits in their own clients/patients.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
Identify at least two assessments that could be used with young children with executive function deficits.
Identify at least two assessments that could be used with adolescents with executive function deficits.
Implement the use of pencil and paper tasks or apps in interventions to help support or remediate executive function skills.
