Person-Centered Assessment for People With Dementia
Person-centered, client-directed evaluations for
individuals with dementia lead to personalized, functional intervention goals
that permit the individuals to participate in meaningful activities. This
course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs through
conducting a person-centered assessment. The presenter will discuss two sample
frameworks and case studies for this type of assessment and then take you
through a step-by-step template for conducting a person-centered assessment,
including giving you time to practice and reflect.
You will be able to:
- conduct a person-centered, client-directed assessment for
people with dementia to yield functional, life participation goals
- integrate commonly used functional standardized
tests/subtests into person-centered assessment for reimbursement purposes
