The current neurogenic newsletter highlights cutting edge research in an understudied yet highly relevant area: cognitive intervention. I’d like to share with you a few of my observations about this important topic. My experiences in this area have included a variety of clinical and research experiences that have shaped my views on cognitive intervention. I lead a funded research study on writing disorders and other cognitive disorders in persons with very early Alzheimer’s disease. I provide cognitive intervention to survivors of traumatic brain injury in a large rehabilitation hospital/center. I teach a 10-week graduate level course on cognitive disorders. I am currently researching cognitive intervention strategies for memory for names and faces in older individuals with normal age-related decline in episodic memory. Based on these experiences, it is my belief that speech-language pathologists have a role in helping individuals cope with cognitive impairment. At the same time, I am concerned about the lack of research that is available on cognitive intervention.
