Cognitive rehabilitation is essential in improving the quality of life after a brain injury. Cognitive problems are one of the most disabling long-term consequences following a brain injury.
Cognitive impairments that are common roadblocks for functional independence and that are target areas for remediation and rehabilitation include:
- Psychosocial Skills
Cognitive rehabilitation therapy provides compensatory strategies and restorative skills through assessments and interventions to gain functional independence. Rehabilitation success is critical with family support and collaboration. Cognitive rehabilitation includes psychoeducation, cognitive exercises, repetition, and behavior modification.
