Mark Ylvisaker paved the cognitive rehabilitation pathway for generations to follow. Many of us who have come after are driving the avenues he worked so hard to create. His work was seminal in the fact that he blended disciplines, seamlessly creating a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Incorporating ideas founded in psychology into standard speech therapy had not been successfully implemented prior to Dr. Ylvisaker. He brought credibility and recognition to the role a speech-language pathologist (SLP) must play in cognitive rehabilitation. This article highlights Dr. Ylvisaker's influence on the development of my programmatic research on the treatment of individuals with brain injury.
