Cognitive Rehabilitation

Cognitive rehabilitation is a form of occupational therapy designed to improve function and return patients to daily activities. It includes an individualized treatment plan that begins with a thorough assessment of cognitive function and subjective daily complaints. This type of targeted rehab directs patients to perform exercises designed to strengthen their focusing ability, cognition, vision, and ability to prioritize tasks.

Patients work closely with their occupational therapist to identify any deficits they may be experiencing as a result of their injury. They work together to set personal goals tailored to the patient's daily roles including those specific to their home, school, and work life. Cognitive rehabilitation includes emotional support and stress reducuction strategies to promote well-being during recovery from brain injury or concussion.
