Have you had recent difficulty remembering your doctor's appointments or recalling what you needed to get at the grocery store? If so, look no further. You may benefit from cognitive-communication therapy!
Cognitive-communication refers to the processes involving attention, memory, organization, problem solving, and executive functioning skills. These cognitive skills can impact one’s ability to communicate with others and can affect their daily activities. Often individuals who experience brain damage (e.g. stroke, traumatic brain injury, Right Hemisphere brain damage) or have progressive neurological disorders (e.g. dementia) can experience difficulty with cognition.
Occasionally, people might have difficulty with pragmatics which greatly impacts their ability to connect with others and socialize. Pragmatics involves the social rules that we utilize daily to establish social relationships. For example, someone with brain injury might experience more impulsivity with interrupting conversations or verbalizing socially inappropriate comments that they are unaware of.
Depending on what your priorities are, we always structure therapy to meet your needs! Here are some examples of how we can help you.
