I am writing to you on behalf of the Colorado Neurobehavioral Center to support the Attention Process Training program. I have received the program, including the APT TEST, in December of 1990. Over the past six months, I have found this program invaluable in my work as a speech/language pathologist working with the mild head injured population.
The Attention Process Training program facilitates a data-based, hierarchical method of treating subtle deficits in attention and concentration. These cognitive deficits might otherwise go undetected and untreated in a direct program that is not targeted specifically for disorders affecting attention and concentration. We support the use of the APT program and plan to purchase the PROMS to augment our treatment in the area of prospective memory with our patients.
