Assessment and therapy for language and cognitive communication difficulties in dementia and other progressive diseases

Anna Volkmer

Across the globe, the increase in current life expectance means that significant growth in the number of people living with dementia can be expected. This has led, and will continue to lead, towards more and more patients being referred and demanding impairment-based therapies from SLTs.

This book provides an essential resource to support clinicians in their day-to-day practice, and highlights how familiar therapy approaches can be transferred to this client group.  It specifically addresses language and cognitive communication, describing assessment and therapy and impairment-based approaches, and describes how to integrate these with more functional strategies.

Contents include: 1) assessment, 2) treatment planning and goal setting, 3) therapy and management for language impairment, cognitive communication difficulties, and conversation partners, 4) decision making and capacity, 5) measuring outcomes, and 6) maintenance, review, discharge.
