The APT1 programme is for adolescents, adults and veterans with attention disorders due to mild, moderate or severe acquired brain injuries. The APT1 programme uses audio CDs for therapy tasks and PDF files for scoresheets

 

Full Description

This clinical treatment programme addresses attention as a comprehensive multi-level functional process. It provides a theoretically based, hierarchically organised method of retraining the process of attention and is based on extensive clinical research in cognitive rehabilitation.

What is APT-1?

  • Comprehensive, self-contained programme designed to retrain attention and concentration deficits in persons with brain injury
  • Theoretically based set of treatment materials and tasks addressing five separate levels of attention process
  • Hierarchically organised auditory and visual tasks designed to improve sustained, selective, alternating and divided attention
  •  Easily administered and scored
  •  Proven effective in increasing attentional skills in published research studies

Who can use it?

Neuropsychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, cognitive remediation specialists, and special education teachers.

Who is it designed for?

  • Inpatients or outpatients with brain injury
  • Patients with attention deficits ranging from mild to severe

Sample Treatment Activities include...

  • Number cancellation with visual distractor
  • Sustained attention in noise using audio CDs
  • Flexible shape cancellation
  • Set-dependent alternating attention tasks
  • Divided attention tasks.

APT-1 includes...

Theoretical background for a five level model of attention. Descriptions for over 50 separate attention treatment activities hierarchically referenced to the theoretical model.

The manual contains over 75 pages in a 3 ring binder with detailed administration procedures. An attention audio CD programme contains 4 CDs. PDF files for 15 scoresheets are are included on a CD.
