We are the International Cognitive Approaches Network (ICAN)
The ICAN is the organization formerly known as The CO-OP Academy. We are a not-for-profit corporation whose vision is to optimize people’s participation and engagement in daily life through a variety of cognitive approaches including the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) approach.
What is the CO-OP approach?
The goal of the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance approach (CO-OP) is to enable children and adults with performance difficulties, be they physical, cognitive, or other, to succeed in performing the everyday tasks and activities that are important to them. It was developed to provide therapists with an evidence-based approach to enabling performance success in an effective and efficient way.
