This volume brings together leading clinical investigators to describe effective interventions for a wide range of neuropsychological impairments. Coverage includes cognitive impairments—problems with attention, learning and memory, visuoperception, language, apraxia, and executive functions—as well as neurologically based social and emotional difficulties. Presented is a framework for developing, delivering, and evaluating services that target these specific areas of functioning while promoting the individual's overall adaptation and recovery. Chapters also address the importance of multidimensional assessment, provide best practice guidelines for clinical research, and discuss the role of pharmacotherapy in cognitive rehabilitation.
