Drill-based Practice for Persons with TBI

Angela Hein Ciccia, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

July 9, 2012


Question

Are drill‑based practices ever appropriate for TBI patients?  

Answer

Yes.  There is a movement away from just drill-based treatment but drill-based therapy does seem to help with post acute patients.  Especially if you are looking at attention and problem-solving, that highly intense, repeated practice of those things is effective when you include the selfâ 'regulatory or selfâ 'monitoring technique.  It goes beyond just a drill-based practice but includes the person monitoring themselves while they're doing it.  This is most appropriate for more chronic patients at a highâ 'level of intensity.
