Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluations (CogFCE)
Our Occupational Therapists (trained in CogFCE through Matheson Systems) conduct a comprehensive set of standardized and observation-based assessments, which determine both the physical and cognitive abilities of the client. The Cognitive portion of the FCE can be administered on its own (without the physical capacity portion) to outline only the cognitive capabilities of the client; however much is learned about cognition, throughout the physical testing. A Job Match CogFCE measures cognitive abilities of the individual that are matched to the cognitive demands of the target job and assist in determining if the job is appropriate and what accommodations may be required.
Cognitive Activation Therapy
A pre-vocational treatment program which focuses on activity participation designed to assist individuals who have experienced cognitive changes due to mild brain injury/concussion, or complex medical condition, such as cancer. Our occupational therapists focus on the areas of personal care, home & community management, and work. We address symptom management, cognitive limitations, set achievable goals, develop routines, address negative thoughts and assist the individual and workplace with the application of compensatory tools and accommodations for a successful return to work experience.
Cognitive Work Hardening
Using the CogFCE profile of the individual, we customize work readiness training that assists the individual in improving cognitive tolerances through increasing exposure to computerized activities and functional work simulation tasks, matched to their target job. Cognitive Work Hardening is often conducted in tandem with a physical work conditioning program offered by our Physiotherapy Partners, Pure Lifestyle Physiotherapy in Winnipeg, and Steelcity Physiotherapy and Wellness Center in Selkirk.
