About this book

The book contains practical and innovative strategies to train clients with Traumatic Brain Injury, Autism, Intellectual Impairment and Behavioural Disorders to compensate for their deficits and to function independently within their environments. The book is a result of 30 years of working directly with clients who are experiencing problems with organization, memory, learning, problem solving and anger management. The book is highly recommended for practitioners working with clients with a range of disability in educational, community or work settings and is a valuable tool to researchers and tertiary institutions to impart this knowledge to future practitioners. 

The book is highly recommended to be included in a cognitive rehabilitation course for counsellors, neuropsychologists, rehabilitation consultants and vocational rehabilitation consultants. It would be highly relevant for a section in a Special Education course and for school psychologists, special education and mainstream teachers working with children with learning and behavioural disorders.
