In this course, you will learn how to design an intervention plan from a scientist-practitioner perspective. We will begin with a discussion of the practical and scientific principles of evidence-based treatments, and the biological mechanisms that underly recovery after acquired brain injury. We will distinguish between spontaneous and experience-dependent recovery, and discuss behavioural compensation for impaired function. Students will learn how to both set goals for and which steps to follow when designing an intervention plan. Finally, we will explore current, evidence-based rehabilitation treatments, their theoretical foundation and the impact they have on cognitive and emotional functioning.
