Grounded in cutting-edge knowledge about cognitive function and recovery from brain injury, this practical reference and text builds on the authors' influential earlier work, Optimizing Cognitive Rehabilitation. It incorporates major advances in the field to provide a new framework for assessing patients and developing individualized rehabilitation plans. The distinguished authors present principles and procedures for promoting engagement, teaching cognitive strategies and discrete facts and routines, introducing external cognitive aids, and supporting patients' social competence. Additional topics include considerations for using computer-based training, managing functional cognitive symptoms, and providing cognitive rehabilitation in the inpatient setting. The book features detailed case illustrations and filled-out examples of 19 reproducible planning and progress monitoring forms. Blank forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
