How to Start Using the Allen’s in a Geriatric Setting
Carol K Bertrand, D. Min, OTR/L Published by Allen Conferences 1997
This publication tells you all you need to have in order to get started using the Allen’s Cognitive Levels. Althought the title implies a geriatric setting, the book’s message is applicable in all settings. Dr. Bertrand was Director of Rehab in a SNF at the time of writing the book. After attending Claudia’s workshops, she was anxious to start using the Cognitive Levels in her facility. This proved to be an almost overwhelming procedure due to the vast amounts of information that were to be digested at once. This publication is a result of her struggle. It simplifies the usage of the Allen Battery and breaks it down into practical step by step procedures. It will introduce the therapist to selecting the correct materials, selecting the patients to start, budgeting the Allen’s, selling the program to administration and nursing, pulling together an interdisciplinary team and in-servicing physicians, families, and rehabilitation personnel. The book is written in a practical “Let’s Get Going!” style.
