After an acquired brain injury or during a progressive neurological illness, a patient frequently undergoes multiple rehabilitation therapies such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy to restore lost abilities. Cognitive rehabilitation improves cognitive function through retraining exercises that focus on cognitive domains like attention, working memory, and processing speed. However, some cognitive abilities will not recover past a certain point if the damage to the brain tissue is too extensive. In that case, compensatory strategies are used to help people adjust to injury. Additionally, changes in brain function can lead to frustration and reduced self-esteem that are addressed through psychotherapy.
Dr. Solis' cognitive rehabilitation complements other key aspects of therapy that focus on improving functional independence on the brain-lesioned individual.
