Understanding & Utilizing the Allen Cognitive Disability Model in Everyday Practice: Foundation Course

This Course is designed for: Occupational and Physical Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Activity Professionals, Social Workers, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Administrators, Psychologists/Mental Health Practitioners, Researchers, Integrative /Holistic Medicine Professionals and Caregivers
The CDM is used by healthcare professionals, caregivers, researchers and organizations that support adult, adolescent and geriatric populations where cognitive impairment has functional implications.

The central construct used in the CDM considers both functional performance and global cognitive processing skills such as attention, working memory, processing, organization and problem solving. Levels of ability and limitations are identified while the person’s capacity to perform routine tasks and adapt to novel situations are recognized.

For healthcare professionals, caregivers, researchers and administrators, this realistic and compassionate approach identifies client focused services that can successfully change the way healthcare professionals’ practice and how care is delivered.
Emphasis will be placed on the theoretical tenets of the model in the context of understanding underlying cognitive processes, personal factors, and how sensory cues are utilized in functional contexts. Use of standardized assessments and skilled observations in directing care and predicting outcomes will be discussed and research, case examples and intervention strategies will be highlighted.
