Abstract

Traumatic brain injury has become a major source of disability. Brain injuries vary greatly depending on the location and severity of injury; however, some common difficulties have been reported such as problems with self-care, poor decision making skills, distraction, impulsivity, and memory trouble. Studying current treatments will allow practitioners to present persons with brain injury evidence based interventions that will most greatly increase functional independence. The present literature review will examine the research on current interventions, more specifically behavioral interventions.
