Why should I attend this workshop?

Chances are you will have, or already have, students in cognitive decline. This is often an under-served population and knowledge will replace an instructors fear of working with this population and replace it with practical tools that will provide confidence. General guidelines will be given that will help you create a framework to help others. Both Pamela and Zoey have first hand experience teaching students with dementia and Alzheimer's and they will be joined by other instructors to share their observations and experience.
