Cognitive Rehabilitation therapy is effective for individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, stroke or other cognitive impairment. Treatment focuses on the restoring normal functioning and/or developing skills to compensate for deficits.
Restorative therapy focuses on resolving the problem through direct retraining and practicing of underlying cognitive skills.
Compensatory therapy focuses on teaching patients to compensate for a problem. Treatment encourages the development of strategies that provide coping skills and boost problem solving abilities.
With a focus on generating lifestyle improvements, functional activities require the application of both restorative and compensatory strategies in the context of real, interactive environments.
