Patients with moderate to severe TBI may result in obvious cognitive difficulties that may interfere with their rehabilitation programs and life after they return to the community.
Neuropsychological evaluations can be used to ensure that patients cognitive limitations and strengths are identified so they receive appropriate support and services.
A thorough evaluation can help a patient avoid potentially dangerous situations, returning to work prematurely, and marital distress that may occur when a patient has poor awareness of their difficulties.
In addition to cognitive remediation and compensation, the results of an evaluation can be used to help guide the manner in which therapists interact with their patient. For example, some patients require a high degree of structure to benefit from therapy whereas others will do better with less structure.
