The Society for Cognitive Rehabilitation, Inc. (SCR) has been evolving since September 1987, when the first organizational committee met in conjunction with the First Annual Cognitive Rehabilitation Conference in Williamsburg, VA.
Over 130 clinicians representing all major disciplines in rehabilitation were in attendance, and an informal organization — The National Society for the Study of Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy (NSSCRT) — emerged from that meeting. NSSCRT held a series of organizational meetings over the next two years. In 1989, the organization was incorporated and the name of the organization was officially changed to The Society for Cognitive Rehabilitation, Inc (SCR).
Our first annual meeting of SCR took place in Richmond, VA on September 13, 1990, in conjunction with the Fourth Annual Conference of Cognitive Rehabilitation. Officers were elected and a Board of Directors was selected. Membership has grown rapidly and SCR is now represented across the USA, Canada, UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Israel, Sweden, Scotland, and Ireland.
