Compensatory strategies for people with traumatic brain injury.

Abstract

This article will describe the development and use of compensatory strategies for people with traumatic brain injury. Brain injury results in a wide variety of physical, cognitive, communication and behavioural deficits which impact on daily living skills, work and recreation. Because of these problems, strategy development may be required to address many aspects of a client's life. As this article shows, the compensatory strategies incorporated into one community-based, real-Life rehabilitation programme in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are as varied as the challenges they seek to address.
