"Functional cognition describes the ability to participate in everyday activities, combining the constructs of function and cognition. Substantial literature now exists to support assessment and intervention methods for functional–cognitive deficits, and policymakers are increasingly requiring improved methods to track functional cognition and address it across health changes. This is the first comprehensive text to focus on methods to assess and develop interventions for people with functional–cognitive impairments.
Numerous videos, practical how-to information, theoretical bases, OTPF–3 alignment, and current evidence guide students and clinicians in integrating assessment information into the context of clinical care. Readers can immediately apply what they learn to those with whom they work."-- Provided by publisher.
