Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Adults with Brain Injury
Cognitive rehabilitation is intervention provided by a clinician to improve a patient’s cognitive and communication abilities. Cognitive and communication difficulties can include, but are not limited to, deficits in attention, memory, executive functioning, problem solving, organization, flexibility, abstract reasoning, comprehension, word retrieval, processing speed and awareness. Cognitive difficulties can impact a person’s functional performance in all environments and can make conversations in medical settings, at work, at home and in social situations difficult.
Within therapy the clinician assists with strategy development to help compensate for the deficits a patient is experiencing, as well as working towards restoring the patient’s abilities to maximize everyday functioning. Goals will vary patient to patient, but overall cognitive rehabilitation is personalized individual treatment targeting deficits in areas of cognition and communication to increase the patient’s independence and quality of life.
