Cognitive rehabilitation is a treatment to assist patients who have sustained cognitive, emotional and behavioral impairment. The process is aimed to help the cognitive impaired individuals to progress to the most possible independent level of function. Regardless of specific treatment used, the patients are likely need to have comprehensive neuropsychological assessment performed. This will help them to understand the strengths and weakness of the patient and this becomes the starting point for designing a program to fit in for the patients. The treatment typically involves four therapeutic modalities, namely; reality orientation therapy, cognitive stimulus therapy, compensation methods and psychotherapy.
