We are a group of occupational therapists who share a passion for serving the needs of persons whose differing cognitive abilities compromise participation in valued activities and occupations. We formed the ACLS and LACLS Committee as a non-profit organization to further this passion and our mission to support compassionate care by the community of international healthcare professionals who serve clients, their families and caregivers.

We have had very positive reviews with the release of our first product, the ACLS-5 & LACLS-5 Manual.  Responses from you have shaped and will continue to shape our future projects that aim to provide and support excellent instruction in the use of the ACLS and other related tools of the cognitive disabilities model.


Check here for the latest information on research, upcoming events, new and ongoing project updates and a special area “Contributor Recognition”.   You can also join us on Facebook for updates.


We are pleased to provide here at no cost to our website visitors unlimited free video viewing to support users of this model and related assessment tools.  We welcome therapists, educators and students.   As we continue to hear suggestions from you we will add to this library of complimentary materials.  Check back often to re-view or experience new offerings.


This area provides educators and clinicians with a variety of resources that support teaching the cognitive disabilities model and related assessments to students.  Coming soon:  sample lesson plans, handouts, power point presentations, and instructional videos.  Please check back for updates.
