Educational opportunities that promote evidence-based interventions for cognitive rehabilitation are needed by clinicians in order to provide optimum care for individuals with brain injury.

ACRM Cognitive Rehabilitation Training provides such an opportunity by presenting evidence-based standards and guidelines for clinical practice and translating them into step-by-step procedures for use by clinicians. The interventions described can be readily used by occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals.


To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Use a decision-tree to assist in determining which type of cognitive rehabilitation to implement.
  2. Describe techniques for improving attention and the steps involved in carrying out treatments.
  3. Identify the general guidelines for the use of external memory strategies.
  4. Describe a general algorithm and conceptual framework for structuring interventions for awareness, executive functioning and behavioral / emotional self-regulation.
  5. Discuss the evidence concerning the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation in the selection and implementation of specific, individualized interventions for cognitive disability.

  • “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!”
