Assessing Cognition In Aphasia And Other Language Impairment

# e30   Assessing Cognition In Aphasia And Other Language Impairment

by Jacqueline Hinckley, PhD, CCC-SLP, BC-NCD

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

Cognitive abilities are critical to positive outcomes, including health, medication/treatment adherence and compliance, and discharge planning. For decades, clinicians have struggled with appropriate ways to assess cognitive abilities like attention, memory, and executive function in the face of frank language impairment like aphasia.  This course is offered for 0.20 SLP CEUs – 2.0 Contact Hours and addresses four critical questions about assessing cognitive abilities in aphasia: 

  • Can we appropriately assess cognition in aphasia? The important parameters that we should consider are identified with specific clinical examples. 
  • Why should we assess cognition in aphasia? The latest scientific evidence showing that cognitive abilities may affect death rate and long-term health, medication self-management, and fall risk are discussed in terms of treating patients with aphasia. 
  • When should we assess cognition in aphasia? Recommendations for best practice from clinical practice guidelines are summarized for best care.
  • How should we assess cognition in aphasia? Three specific assessment tools that are appropriate for use with individuals with aphasia are described. 

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab. 

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.  

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the considerations for assessing cognition in the presence of aphasia.
  2. Identify one long-term risk of cognitive impairment.
  3. Describe best practice guidelines for when cognitive abilities should be assessed.
  4. List three cognitive assessment tools that are appropriate for assessing cognition in aphasia.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to
receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.
