New Cognitive Training Class in Reno and Carson City!!!

Registration Deadline August 25th

HIANN is offering a new Cognitive Training class in both Reno and Carson City with Amanda Sumrall starting in April. As many of you know, Amanda is on the faculty at UNR in the Speech and Pathology Department and has taught our class the past two years. The course includes a tablet pc and specialized software from Cognitive Therapy designed to be used by individuals with brain injuries. Instruction will be provided on the following areas of cognition: (1) organization, (2) attention, (3) short term memory, and (4) long-term memory. Classes will be held on alternating Monday evenings in Carson City and Reno from 6:00 to 7:30 to include six sessions at each location. The class is provided to our members in good standing at no cost!!!!!    

HIANN is offering the class to new students and members that have taken the class in the past, but have memory issues. What is exciting and different about this class? HIANN has made arrangements with the software company Constant Therapy to integrate cognitive training software into our class along with tablet pc’s. And an even greater benefit to all HIANN Members is you can keep the tablet pc for your own personal use and continue to use the Constant Therapy software for 6 additional months or longer after the class, provided you successfully complete the class.  

Carson City classes will be held at the Lutheran Church in South Carson on:

September 10 & 24, October 8 & 29, November 12, December 3

Reno classes will be held at Renown South Hospital on:

September 17, October 1 & 15, November 5 & 26, December 10

 For more information on the class or if you want to attend, please contact Jeff at (209)482-8562 or jeff@mcdaniel.net. We will be sending out additional detailed course information to any member or caregiver interested in considering the class.

 We must have 10 students committed to attend our classes at each location, so please let us know if you plan on attending or would like to attend one session to see if this the right class for you. The deadline date is August 25th!!!!!
