ROB KOCH, BS, OTR/L, is a licensed occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience treating patients of all ages with a diverse range of diagnoses. Mr. Koch spent more than 20 years working in inpatient and outpatient neurological rehabilitation in North Carolina where his occupational therapy practice included extensive emphasis on promoting the skilled use of functional therapy activities to optimize the independence of patients with CVA, ABI, and SCI. This focus resulted in the creation of “Functional Therapy Activities”, an online catalog for use in adult neurological rehabilitation. He currently practices in a skilled nursing facility working with patients in rehab and long-term care with a variety of cognitive deficits.
Over the last decade, Mr. Koch has been developing the Functional Cognitive Activities approach to improving the lives of patients with cognitive deficits due to brain injury and stroke. This approach, utilizing a sequence of functional, “real-life” activities to promote independence, is presented in detail in this seminar.
