Sunshine31-Cognitive disorders in adults can range from amnesia to dementia. Poor memory recall in these disorders requires cognitive training interventions by therapists to assist the member in piecing back their life.
For example, with patients suffering from dementia, the family of the patient might provide a series of photographs labeled with dates and actually try to stir up some memory of the event.
For these patients a good strategy to retain current memories is to have memorable events on video.
This also helps those suffering from amnesia because it allows them to place pieces of their life together and the video is the best proof of that.
Children also suffer cognitive social disorders but the most prevalent are Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Attention deficient hyperactivity disorder. With Autism, the child does not express the normal expressions that a child or person would demonstrate in a normal conversation. These children often seek occupational therapy and cognitive assessments in order to help in the recovery.
