Dr Chris Chapparo and Dr Judy Ranka will be returning in July 2018. They developed the Perceive: Recall: Plan and Perform System (PRPP). The PRPP Assessment is a standardised, client centred, criterion referenced, occupational therapy assessment of occupational performance. It is used with clients of any age, gender, diagnosis, or cultural background whose performance is compromised by difficulties with the cognitive demands of occupations. The assessment yields information about performance mastery and cognitive strategy application behaviours.

Strategy application behaviours assessed align with dimensions of attention and perception (P), learning, memory and recall (R), planning, decision-making and judgment (P), and the capacity to act on decisions and follow-through with plans (P). Findings from the PRPP Assessment are then used to plan PRPP intervention where the focus is on developing strategy application behaviours required by everyday tasks and to improve task performance mastery. The PRPP assessment is used internationally, and has been translated into several languages. It has established validity in a variety of practice domains including neurology, mental health, learning disabilities, autism, chronic pain, HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders, and dementia.

Over a one week period they will run a 5 day assessment course.
