This live online chat provides the opportunity to discuss both restorative and compensatory treatment strategies across the continuum of care, with an emphasis on patient and/or caregiver reports of functioning in setting and prioritizing of goals and in using effective treatment approaches. The following panelists will be available to answer questions:
