abstract

  • Specialists in communication disorders who work with individuals who have traumatic brain injury (TBI) often focus their rehabilitative efforts on the cognitive, social, and behavioral dimensions of disability. These domains of functioning are included in the scope of practice of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association because of their close associations with communication effectiveness. This article summarizes relevant research findings and clinical perspectives in the areas of intervention for disorders of behavioral self-regulation and social-interactive competence after TBI. This clinical summary is associated with a systematic evidence review sponsored by the TBI Practice Guidelines Group of the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS).
