Unilateral Neglect and Awareness Deficits After Right Hemisphere Brain Damage
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Two deficits commonly caused by damage to the right hemisphere are unilateral neglect and anosognosia. Unilateral neglect is reduced attention to one region of space, and anosognosia is reduced awareness of deficits. These deficits commonly co-occur and have an impact on how well a patient participates in and responds to treatment. This webinar will discuss characteristics, assessment, and treatment of both disorders.
You will be able to:
- differentiate among at least three forms of unilateral neglect
- describe several methods of assessing anosognosia
- explain several treatments that appear to be effective for improving awareness of deficits
- explain several treatments that are effective for reducing unilateral neglect
