Progressing from the Clinic to the Community Typical therapy approaches used for rehabilitation of adults with cognitive deficits due to brain injury or stroke target primary cognitive sub-skills (memory, orientation, attention, etc.) in isolation. Therapy methods normally include tabletop activities, computer training, and pencil/paper tasks to improve underlying cognitive impairment. However, the learning associated with these methods does not always translate to the world outside the clinic. Patients may become frustrated with their lack of progress or find themselves unable to perform necessary tasks once they return to their home environment.
