SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, October 2002, Vol. 12, 32. doi:10.1044/nnsld12.3.32
The June 2002 issue of the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation features an article entitled, “Perspectives on the Rehabilitation of Individuals With Cognitive Impairments After Brain Injury: A Rationale for Reconsideration Of Theoretical Paradigms.” This article was written by Mark Ylvisaker, Robin Hanks, and Douglas Johnson-Greene, on behalf of the Joint Committee on Interprofessional Relations between Division 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) of the American Psychological Association and ASHA. This cooperative work by one speech-language-pathologist (Ylvisaker) and two clinical neuropsychologists (Hanks and Johnson-Greene) presents a cogent and well-argued contrastive description of traditional approaches to TBI management and what the authors term a “contextualized” approach. A central distinction between them is the impairment centered focus for traditional treatment, while the contextualized approach emphasizes treatment focused on activities limitations and societal participation, to use the World Health Organization’s terms. Not only is this a particularly readable and important article, it is testament to the growing spirit of cooperation between the two professions.
