Occupational therapists are skilled in the assessment of cognition both through paper based cognitive screens/assessments as well as performing functional cognitive assessment in peoples homes. Cognition is integral to effective performance across the broad range of daily occupations such as work, educational home management, and play and leisure and can affect people of all ages. Occupational therapists assess cognition across a wide range of conditions such as age related decline, neurological impairment, various forms of dementia. 

Post assessment through the use of occupations and activities we are then able to provide intervention and facilitate individuals’ cognitive functioning to enhance occupational performance, self-efficacy, participation, and perceived quality of life.
