Cognitive remediation is a form of therapy that focuses on improving cognitive performance among individuals who struggle with memory, attention, language, and executive functioning difficulties. These deficits are commonly reported by those who sustained a significant neurological event, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or tumor resection. During cognitive remediation, patients will work on cognitive exercises, and learn coping strategies to improve their cognitive functioning. Such program is customized according to the patient’s strengths, weaknesses, personality, emotional states, and individual functional goals.
