Stroke causes a profound impact on both patients and family members and dramatically changes all aspects of life. Cognitive deficits as a result of stroke may have a permanent impact on all activities carried out during a patient’s daily life, and lead to accelerated physical decline as well as increased falls risks. These include difficulties with attention, orientation, memory, thought organization, reasoning, and functional problem solving. Often the patient has limited or no awareness of these issues and the complications associated with them. Therefore, it is imperative for the rehab professional to be able to recognize these deficits, and to understand how they affect a patient’s overall function, completion of ADL’s, and discharge plans.
This recording will provide you with the latest evidence-based knowledge related to cognitive deficits and their impact on stroke recovery. You will learn how to apply principles of experience-dependent neuroplasticity to select and implement functional treatment objectives that help your patients to maintain and improve their current levels of function. This recording will increase your ability to apply patient-focused interventions that facilitate more independent completion of language-based ADL’s. You will learn about proper documentation of patient goals and outcomes to optimize reimbursement for skilled services provided.

ANYSIA ENSSLEN-BOGGS, ED.D, MS, CCC-SLP, is a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with almost 10 years of experience in a variety of clinical settings, including acute care, outpatient, inpatient rehab, and home care. In three of these settings she has had the opportunity to serve as a graduate student supervisor, and a clinical fellowship year supervisor. In addition, she has significant experience working with adults with strokes in an outpatient work and community re-entry program. She is currently employed at a skilled nursing facility in central Pennsylvania. Dr. Ensslen has also been an instructor for Project IMPRESS (school-based SLP graduate program) at Bloomsburg University. She earned her doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Kentucky in Lexington. Her dissertation research focused on the clinical training and supervision of speech-language pathology graduate students. In her current work setting, Dr. Ensslen’s caseload consists primarily of geriatric patients with cognitive-linguistic, and swallowing deficits.
