Improving Attention, Memory, and Thinking Skills
When attention, memory and thinking skills are impacted, it can interfere with all of your life activities; from making dinner, to doing homework, staying focussed to get through a project at work, following conversations, and more.
These kinds of thinking skills (also called cognitive skills) can be associated with a wide range of issues. Diagnoses like ADHD and learning disorders, PTSD, depression, anxiety, chemo fog, long-COVID, sleep problems, concussion, and brain injury can all result in cognitive issues.
Not only can cognitive issues cause frustration because you aren’t able to do the things you want to do in life; they can also result in emotional strain and have an impact on self-esteem and confidence.
Cognitive intervention is an area of practice that addresses thinking skills and helps you to change how you approach activities. It’s important to remember that, according to research, people can achieve even very complicated tasks if they break them down into manageable parts and approach them in a step-by-step manner.
Therapists can help you address problems ranging from study skills to home organization, learning strategies to help with attention and memory, how to organize your workstation so that you can work more efficiently, planning and organizing your tasks and daily routines, and more.
