Developing the Rehabilitation Plan
Rehabilitation planning for individuals following a traumatic brain injury is a goal-oriented, client-centered process with its foundations in functional, integrated, and comprehensive assessment (Guare, Samson, Guth, Warren, & Burke, 1988). The emphasis on client-centered assessment relates to the extreme variation in skill performance even among individuals with similar brain injuries. In more specific terms, rehabilitation planning following brain injury is defined as a process of identifying a desired outcome; specifying current performance abilities and inabilities (those skills needed to function in the desired community, educational, and vocational domains); and defining the necessary interventions, services, and environments that will assist an individual in achieving the desired objectives.
