Empirical Support for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
The theoretical, clinical, and empirical sophistication of the field of brain injury rehabilitation has evolved exponentially over the last two decades. Traditional physical rehabilitation models did not address the unique needs of the patient with acquired brain injury, particularly the long-term psychosocial and community reentry difficulties experienced by these patients and their families. New models for the rehabilitation of persons with brain damage have of necessity been developed. These new paradigms, particularly in postacute brain injury rehabilitation, transcend physical restoration models to embrace cognitive and neurobehavioral, social, and experiential aspects of recovery and rehabilitation.
