Authors and Instructors

Margaret P. Calkins, Ph.D. is internationally recognized as a leader in the field of environments for elderly, especially those with Alzheimer's and other dementias. Dr. Calkins has spent many years exploring the therapeutic potential of the environment--social and organizational as well as physical--particularly as it relates to frail and impaired older adults. A member of several national organizations and panels which focus on issues of care for cognitively impaired older Americans, she speaks frequently at conferences both here in the US and abroad.

Jennifer Brush, M.A., CCC/SLP is a highly regarded Speech-Language Pathologist known for her work in the areas of memory and swallowing interventions for people with dementia.   As a sought after speaker, Ms. Brush offers interactive and educational presentations that help audiences bridge the gap between current research findings and the care needs of their clients.  Ms. Brush is the co-author of A Therapy Technique for Improving Memory: Spaced Retrieval and Time Well Spent with the Older Adult, as well as the author of several articles. 

Teaching methods: Each course in the series follows a similar format, with information about the various conditions that cause limitations or difficulties in performing everyday activities, and information about a range of environmental modifications that can be implemented to compensate for deficits.

Course content is delivered in a text format, pictures and graphics, case examples, live web links, references and resources, audio and multimedia presentations. At the conclusion of the course, there is a Final Exam which requires a minimum passing score of 80%.
