1. Overview of Neurodegenerative Dementias

While there are many types of dementia, this chapter will focus on neurodegenerative dementia syndromes in which individuals experience progress of loss of memory, language, visuospatial functions, or changes in behavior/comportment. It will describe the clinical and diagnostic features associated with each dementia syndrome as well as the relationship between clinical syndrome and underlying neuropathology. It will also highlight the importance of a person-centered team approach to intervention.

2. Case Reports: Functional Interventions for Individual with an Aphasic Neurodegenerative Dementia

This chapter will highlight person-centered evidence-based approaches for individuals with aphasic dementia, exemplified in a case study. It will also demonstrate ways in which technology can be integrated directly and indirectly into care.

3. Case Reports: Functional Interventions for Individuals with an Amnestic Neurodegenerative Dementia

This chapter will highlight person-centered evidence-based approaches for individuals with amnestic dementia, exemplified in two case studies. It will also demonstrate ways in which technology can be integrated directly and indirectly into care.

4. Case Reports: Functional Interventions for Individuals with a Behavioral Neurodegenerative Dementia

This chapter will highlight person-centered evidence-based approaches for individuals with bvFTD dementia, exemplified in a case study. It will also demonstrate ways in which technology can be integrated directly and indirectly into care. It will conclude by highlighting the importance of collaborating with Occupational Therapists when working with individuals with visuospatial dementia syndromes.
