Target specific high-level cognitive processes in your clients with executive function disorder with activities that can be individualized to their needs and interests.
Executive functions perform a collective service that comes into play with all facets of cognitive processing. Patients with executive function disorders have difficulty with:
  • planning and organization
  • identifying what needs to be done
  • carrying out the steps in an orderly way
  • identifying the beginning tasks
  • maintaining attention
  • evaluating how they're doing on a task
  • taking feedback or suggestions
This manual provides a structured framework for therapists to guide the evaluation process and treatment of patients with executive function disorders. The manual gives:
  • information on the use of standardized and informal assessment tools to reflect the patient's real-life performance
  • instruction in the use of the Patient-Initiated Continuum (PIC) to involve the patient as a stakeholder in therapy and to quantify patient improvement
  • thorough explanations of the processes of time management, attention (five forms), goal-directed behavior, and memory
  • activities to systematically target self-assessment, time management, attention (five forms), goal-directed behavior, and memory
  • examples of goals and written reports
  • documentation requirements
Extra helps include:
  • patient history form
  • patient self-assessment checklists
  • patient performance checklist
  • time management templates
  • 65 pages of reproducible activities
  • answer key
