Adults 18 years of age or older who have neurological or organic memory impairment. (TBI, CVAs, dementia, MS, PD, brain tumor, AIDS, epilepsy, chronic alcohol abuse)

5

Brief Cognitive Status Exam Purpose:

Purpose: to quickly evaluate global cognitive function with the focus on level of impairment by assessing: orientation, time estimation, mental control, incidental recall, clock drawing, inhibition of learned responses, and verbal productions.

(dementia, mild learning difficulties, TBI or Alzheimer’s)

6

Brief Cognitive Status Exam Population:

individuals 16-90 years old with suspected memory deficits or who are diagnosed with a wide range of neurological, psychiatric, and developmental disorders.(dementia, mild learning difficulties, TBI or Alzheimer’s)

7

Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) version 2 Purpose:

rapid screening instrument for mild cognitive dysfunction. Assesses: attention, concentration, executive functions, memory, language, visuoconstructional skills, conceptual thinking, calculations and orientation

8

Allen Cognitive Level Screen Purpose:

to examine cognitive function by leather lacing, helps figure out intervention approach. (or so we are told)

9

Allen Cognitive Level Screen Population:

Population: any psychiatric or cognitively impaired population; larger ACLS is suitable for the elderly or visual impaired
any psychiatric or cognitively impaired population; larger ACLS is suitable for the elderly or visual impaired

10

Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) Purpose:

measures UE motor ability, dexterity, and strength thru timed and functional tasks

11

Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) Population:

Adults over 18 years of age form a population of higher functioning individuals with stroke and TBI

12

Brain Injury Visual Assessment Battery for Adults (biVABA) Purpose

screens for strengths and limitations in visual processing
