    CURRENT PROJECTS

    Seeking Collaborators on New Compensatory Strategies Project

    The Community-Based Treatment Task Force of the BI-ISIG is seeking members to join in a new project on utilization of Compensatory Strategies to improve functional independence for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in community-based settings (e.g., home, work, school, leisure). This project will begin by doing a literature search for research evidence related to compensatory strategy use for individuals with TBI, followed by developing a resource (e.g., compendium, manual, guide) that includes compensatory strategies used by leading providers of brain injury-related community-based treatment across the United States and internationally.

    Interested members are welcome to join the Community-Based Treatment Task Force meetings at the ACRM Annual Conference in Chicago; for more information, please contact the task force chairs, Nina Geier, PT, MPT or Ann Marie McLaughlin, PhD.
