Dr. Antonio Rotondo ,

Review

Very informative and helpful discussions for clinical practice and neuropsychological assessment.

occupational therapist in NH ,

Stimulating and useful!

I am an occupational therapist with 25 years of experience. I work with clients with a wide variety of diagnoses including CVA, TBI and other neurological disorders. My job is to help people become more independent in their activities of daily living. In order to do this I have to address their functional cognition. This podcast helps me keep up with current practices and developments in the field.

Laurenandersen ,

Very knowledgeable

I just started listening to this podcast and I love it! I have been looking for more neuropsychology content and I hit gold with this :)
