Functional Communication Assessment for Healthcare Professionals

When an older adult has difficulties in the ability to communicate effectively, there is an impact not only on that person’s safety and connection with others but also their overall quality of life. Learn how to evaluate a person’s comprehension skills so you can modify your presentation of verbal and written information accordingly. When you know how to assess a person’s expressive skills, verbally and in a written format, it is possible to maximize their communication potential based on their strengths.
