Research Reports - Pediatric cognitive rehabilitation: Effective treatments in a school-based environment

NeuroRehabilitation. 2014 Jan 1;34(1):23-8

Shaw DR

BACKGROUND: Many studies have investigated the impact of pediatric Cognitive
Rehabilitation Therapy (CRT) upon intellectual functioning after traumatic brain
injury; however, relatively few have identified efficacious treatment in a school
setting.
OBJECTIVE: The purpose is to present a variety of CRT strategies that would be
useful to a teacher or therapist working with students who are learning disabled
or who have who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
METHODS: This article investigates the particular challenges in learning which
result from impaired cognition, and suggests techniques for improving memory and
executive functioning.
RESULTS: Students who are learning disabled or who have TBI face social and
emotional issues that impact their learning. Special therapeutic interventions
are necessary to assist with orienting to their setting, integrating with peers,
and coping with distressing emotions.
CONCLUSIONS: Students with TBI can adapt and flourish in a school based setting
provided that therapies and learned strategies are targeted to their specific
needs.
