The Neuropsychological Educational Approach to Remediation (NEAR) uses the intake and assessment process to evaluate cognitive skills and behaviors, to engage the client and formulate treatment strategies. As the first point of contact for the client coming to cognitive training in The Learning Center, the intake appointment provides an opportunity to engage the client in treatment by providing her with a positive first experience and identifying goals and motivation for cognitive training. The therapist gathers data during this appointment, including determining the client’s learning style, level of motivation, cognitive problems, personal interests, ability level, and recovery goals. This information provides the basis for an initial treatment plan and schedule of cognitive remediation sessions.
