“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!”
