Welcome Message from Susie Wyatt, Symposium Coordinator

 We are excited about the presenters and topics for this year's symposium! Our theme for 2014, “Global Strategies for Integrating and Interpreting Cognition” has inspired many excellent presenters and topics including our featured speaker and address, “The Sensory Connection to Cognition.” In addition, our program includes a variety of workshops, podium presentations, poster sessions, and round table discussions on a wide range of topics related to the cognitive disabilities model and its use in practice. This symposium is an excellent opportunity to network and to update and strengthen your knowledge and skills for promoting the "best ability to function" with persons who have cognitive impairments and their caregivers.
