Course description
This course presents the neurocognitive base of the Cognitive Performance Test (CPT) and its updated practice model. It includes its use in functional diagnosis, and in predicting capacity for IADL/ADL, independent living, and safety. New research that differentiates CPT levels from Allen levels will be presented including outcome studies in Driving and differential diagnosis for Mild Neurocognitive Disorder versus Dementia. Participants will receive a CPT 2013 manual and practice selected subtasks including Medbox with video case examples and role play. Participants will be able to discuss CPT evaluation in their clinics and practice applications for their clients with respect to diagnosis and prognosis.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to: 

  •  Discuss the theoretical base of the CPT as a working memory and executive function measure. 
  • Present new CPT research in diagnosis and driving and contrast this with the Allen model.
  • Review the CPT 2013 manual and practice administration, scoring and interpreting selected subtasks.
  • Discuss the CPT practice model in context of client factors.
