“Interweaving the Cognitive Disabilities Model with other Intervention Models”
Featured Guest Speaker: Joan Toglia, PH.D., OTR
Dr. Toglia is Associate Professor and Program Director of the Graduate Program in Occupational Therapy at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY and a Professional Associate in the Rehabilitation Medicine Department at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill-Cornell Medical Center. With over 25 years of expertise, Dr. Toglia has published and presented nationally and internationally on perceptual cognitive rehabilitation.
“Looking through a Different Lens: Dynamic Assessment and the Multicontext Treatment Approach”
Dr. Toglia’s presentation will describe the theoretical assumptions, methods and characteristics of dynamic assessment and the multicontext approach with clinical applications and research implications for persons with schizophrenia, dementia and brain injury. Comparisons will be drawn between this approach and the cognitive disability model.
Dr. Toglia’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion comparing the two models and sharing clinical applications that integrate aspects of both approaches.
Additional presentations and posters by OTs, PTs, and SLPs will address the interweaving of other practice and discipline-specific models with the cognitive disabilities model in clinical practice, education, and research in physical rehabilitation, geriatric, mental health contexts.
