Neurological Cognitive Day Treatment Program
Neurocognitive Day Treatment Program is a day-time initiative that combines the services of various professionals and those who provide professional assistance. The goal is to provide creative individual or group therapy in a forum that focuses on improvement in executive function, memory impairment, and independent ambulation with special avenues for motivation and interactive activity programming. This is a popular, effective approach for those with traumatic brain injury, stroke sufferers, and others.
We use interactive activities to supplement our clients’ overall cognitive abilities following an initial cognitive assessment completed by the Speech-Language Pathologist and Occupational Therapist. Here, a client is doing a visual recall activity using a supplemental cognitive application on a tablet. A rehab technician assists with navigation to help the client complete the memory task.
Game-based activities help facilitate social/cognitive communication skills such as turn-taking, initiation, recall, attention, and problem-solving. These activities provide an engaging environment promoting social interactivity.
This is a day-time initiative guided by both rehabilitative and mental health professionals. It has as its primary aim assisting those with traumatic brain injuries to return to a sense of self-reliance, without being a total victim to their injuries. It combines modalities to achieve memory improvement, confidence building, physical agility, team building and executive function.
