SLP: CA, CT, MS, ASHA

Person-centered care is emphasized as a best practice in general health care as well as speech pathology. However, for a variety of reasons,
current therapy practices continue to use games and workbooks as a primary therapy tool, without clearly emphasizing a link to functional needs of the patient. How can we choose more meaningful therapy tools and interventions, practicing at the top of our license, using what research tells us about adult rehab? This webinar will describe evidence-based and personalized interventions for the SLP to use in therapy for language and cognitive disorders in adults, across the continuum of care.

In order to receive credit for this webinar participants must attend the webinar for the full duration, complete the quiz with a minimum score of 70%, and complete the participant survey. Those who do not pass initially are given the opportunity to re-take the quiz.
