There are many “workbooks” available to target cognitive and language challenges, but those choices do not always promote person-centered therapy that addresses activity and participation. Research tells us that cognitive and language therapy needs to be personally relevant in order to generalize to everyday life. This is also consistent with the best practice to address activity / participation needs for communication (and not just impairment-level challenges), from the WHO-ICF framework.

The following blog posts focus on activity + participation topics for those returning to work. The best compliment these individuals share with me after returning to work for the first time is “It was just like we practiced!” You can find therapy materials, documentation samples, accommodation ideas, and an activity guide for all the skills needed to return to work in the Back To Work Series.
