This manual gives clinicians and caregivers a procedure with practical tools for assessing changes in awareness and adjustment in adults with brain injury. Using a methodical approach with step by step instructions, users are guided through 23 steps with 24 worksheets for assessing intellectual awareness, emergent awareness and anticipatory awareness. Once the levels of awareness and adjustment have been assessed, information is used to set short and long term goals for six domains of cognitive, executive, communication, physical, emotional and other. Accompanying the 71 page manual is a CD with PDF forms for all worksheets and scoresheets.
This manual provides methods for clinicians and caregivers who are working with clients in a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient programs, community based programs and home settings. It includes methods for including families in the assessment process by gathering and comparing their observations and experience with that of direct-care staff.
- This manual is included in the Cognitive Rehabilitation Tool Kit after TBI.
