This course provides an overview of executive cognitive functions and presents assessment approaches designed to assess performance deficits as they pertain to community reintegration. As “control” functions, executive cognitive functions enable people to engage in controlled behavior beyond that based on impulse alone. Deficits in executive functioning are common after moderate and severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and greatly hinder one’s ability to resume adult social, vocational, family, and leisure roles. Through understanding these important elements of cognitive performance, rehabilitation professionals can conduct competent evaluations of an individual’s community reintegration following TBI.
