Cognitive rehabilitation provides services for patients with cognitive impairments with functional improvements being the ultimate goal of treatment. This type of therapy is provided by neuropsychologists with specialized training in providing cognitive rehabilitation services. Short term and long term goals are established and are achieved by incorporating tools such as compensatory strategies or process training programs. Cognitive rehabilitation therapy takes into account factors such as personal, emotional, and social impacts of a brain injury and how it interacts with cognitive functioning. Emphasis is also placed on providing brain injury education for the patient’s family and support system in order to maximize outcomes.
