Simulated Presence Treatment for People With Dementia

Simulated presence treatment, in which an individual living with dementia watches a video or listens to audio of a familiar person (a family member or doctor), may reduce agitation and confusion and allow the individual to redirect to meaningful activities. This course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs through using this tool to help their clients with dementia. The presenter will share examples of the tool and then walk you through creating simulated presence videos using simple technology for your own clients with dementia, including giving you time to practice and reflect.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • create personalized simulated presence videos
  • use a talking photo album app to create personalized reminiscence albums narrated by family members

What is a micro course?
