Abstract

This chapter reviews comprehensive assessment in persons with brain injury in both acute and post-acute settings. A model of assessment is described and the various components of the assessment in the context of this model are reviewed with goal of conducting an evaluation which comprehensively describes functioning and leads to effective rehabilitation planning. The importance of the neuropsychologist conducting assessments as part of a larger rehabilitation team is also reviewed. Finally, a case study is provided which demonstrates the use of this assessment model.
