This week, we are looking at promising research behind a cognitive rehabilitation program for Parkinson's.
And, I'll just skip to the good news—the gains in cognitive rehab actually translated to increased functional abilities, which says to me that this is important research for us all to consider.
To discuss this article please join us at the OT Potential Club.
