Show Notes

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.

You can read the article here: Improving functional disability and cognition in Parkinson’s disease randomized controlled trial.

Also, Happy World OT Day to my fellow occupational therapy practitioners. On the blog this week, we updated our Guide to Occupational Therapy for you to share with your communities.
