Cognitive changes?

Our Occupational Therapists are cognitive rehabilitation professionals who provide assessments and direct therapy to clients who have neurological or complex medical conditions or have experienced a gradual change in cognitive function. We specialize in concussion care and post-concussion rehabilitation and cognitive work conditioning to increase tolerance to the physical, cognitive and psychosocial demands of work. We are helping people increase participation in daily actives while managing mental health and physical symptoms using healthy strategies. 

Cognitive Assessments

BrainFx 360 is a web and tablet-based assessment of Neurofunction TM. The client complete 62 multi-sensory, real-life and simulated activities on a tablet that measures performance on 30 cognitive skills. Because more complex cognitive skills are measured, it is designed to discern subtle dysfunction. When a baseline assessment has been completed, reports can be compared to understand the degree of change, providing a useful functional and clinical outcome measure. Designed for people (age 10 & Up) with concussion/mild TBI, stroke, mental illness, dementia, and other neurological disorders or conditions with cognitive effects.   

Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluations (Cognitive Functional Abilities Evaluations)

A cognitive functional capacity evaluation (CogFCE) is similar to a functional capacity evaluation, but it emphasizes measuring cognitive abilities and capacity for conducting cognitive demands. A CogFCE is an evidence-based, comprehensive assessment that uses measurable, objective testing methods to obtain an accurate representation of your cognitive abilities such as attention, planning, memory, problem-solving, and executive function. . A Job Match CogFCE uses the cognitive demands of the target job to test the client's abilities in determining if the job tasks are within their capabilities and can be used to guide possible workplace accommodations. 

Cognitive  Rehabilitation and Work Conditioning

A treatment program which is designed for individuals who have experienced cognitive changes due to mild brain injury/concussion, or complex medical conditions to resume functional activities, and return to school or work. With a focus on increasing activity participation, cognitive tolerance through clinic-based work simulation, and symptom management, our cognitive rehabilitation OT's use Goal Management Training, Pacing Points, and cognitive compensatory strategies to optimize ability and cognitive-functional potential. Psychosocial barriers are identified and addressed using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Behavioural Activation, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Impact Reduction to prepare the client for a successful return to learn or work experience. We also conduct worksite cognitive accommodation assessments to support employees go back to work or stay at work.
