Exceptional course evaluations!

"Absolutely excellent. Thank you for making the slides available. Whatever helps us
bridge the gap between research and the nuts and bolts of implementing it in 
treatment is very helpful."

"I like the examples in Dr. Cicerone's presentation; the case studies were great.
Some people seem to still get stuck on making the diagnosis and getting testing 
done. Dr Cicerone did great explaining why the focus of treatment should be on
function of the individual."

"It was an honor to have Drs. Cicerone and Gordon present for further rationale
and application of the Cognitive Rehabilitation Manual ...THANK YOU!"
