Reviews

"This book is unique in two ways. First, it pulls together theories and techniques from a variety of fields, including neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, special education, neuroplasticity, and brain injury rehabilitation. These disciplines are rarely, if ever, brought together, and Sohlberg and Turkstra provide a tremendously helpful synthesis, leading to groundbreaking new ways of thinking about rehabilitation. Second, it provides clear-cut ideas for ways that therapists can apply these exciting theoretical breakthroughs in daily practice. An extremely valuable resource." - Sarah A. Raskin, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, USA "If you need to know how to help a patient with any form of brain injury, this is the book for you. It is written by outstanding authorities in the field, at a level that is practical for every type of care provider. Of particular importance are the principles of 'plan, implement, and evaluate,' the connections to research evidence, and the practical exercises for teaching multistep routines, the use of external aids, and metacognitive strategies." - Michael Posner, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), University of Oregon, USA "This book should be required reading for anyone, in any discipline, who practices rehabilitation with cognitively impaired patients. This is what the field has always needed--a resource that combines theory, research evidence, clinical reasoning, and practical 'how-tos' in a single, clearly written, and superbly documented volume. The book provides detailed guidance on how to engage and train patients. It is packed with materials that can be used right away for treatment, all illustrated with useful examples. The well-designed Application Exercises will be valuable additions to classroom teaching or to any rehabilitation department's clinician training series." - Tessa Hart, Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, USA
