CounterPoint Health Services Integration of the BCAT Approach

At CounterPoint Health Services, we integrate BCAT science in our clinical assessments and treatment. 

The BCAT Approach is unique applied concept for assessing and working with people who have memory and other cognitive impairments.  It integrates three distinct features:

  • The BCAT Test System
  • BCAT Brain Rehabilitation 
  • The BCAT Working Memory Exercise Book

BCAT Brain Rehabilitation

Brain rehabilitation is a loss and restoration process, based on cognitive exercises that promote brain cells (neurons) to improve functioning. It is based on the principles of neuroplasticity and cognitive reserve. Neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections, especially through specific cognitive or physical exercises.  To learn more, click here.

 

BCAT Working Memory Exercise Book

From both a functional and neuro-cognitive standpoint, memory and executive skills depend on a person’s ability to sustain adequate attention and focus.  The ability to make new memories and exercise appropriate executive controls is largely influenced by attentional capacity.  For the purposes of this Exercise Book, we substitute the term, working memory, for attentional capacity.  However, one should be aware that working memory is larger than attention alone, and that it consists of two primary components—attentional capacity and task manipulation.
