Provided same strategies I've used in the past for TBI adults, but in a kid-friendly manner, which has always been difficult for me to do.

Practical strategies and examples for using cognitive therapy.
Review by: Randi on March 9, 2015
The information presented is practical and I can use some of the strategies with my current client.
Review by: Thelma on March 8, 2015
The three pronged approach is a great strategy not only for clients with ABI but can be applied with modifications to other areas of clinical intervention. I weep idly the names given to strategies ie "blinder focus" and "highway attention".

Very very insightful information from a pediatric perspective

Well organized. Meaningful examples that helped explain process.

The article was informative. SLP's have been overlooked in providing therapy for TBI patients in the armed forces and this provides relevant research references to support our role in therapy.

Cognitive rehabilitation is a big part of what I do. I appreciate any and all information that will help me better serve my patients.
Review by: Kim-Rae on January 2, 2015
The presentation of intervention ideas and the integration of the individuality of the client into the creation of the format for intervention influences directly the outcome of the success of the treatment plan and the design of the augmentative devices or assistance suggested for the patients.
