Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
Cognitive Rehabilitation is an intervention to address the primary impairment resulting from TBI: Cognitive functioning. Over time, the healthcare length of stay for children has been significantly reduced and reports indicate unmet needs for cognitive remediation following TBI. At school, children apply cognitive skills to learning; however, the relationship of cognitive intervention to learning at school has not been fully explored. This talk will present the early viewpoint of pediatric cognitive rehabilitation and the evolution over time. The view of cognitive rehabilitation related to child development, service delivery, and the effects of TBI on school performance will be offered.
