Dr. David Demarest and Dr. Allison Logemann use scientific techniques to determine preexisting characteristics of the individual and provide an index of the extent and type of changes brought about by the injury or condition.
An assessment of this type documents the patient’s functional strengths and weaknesses and an evaluation is made regarding:
Deficiencies caused by brain damage versus preexisting cognitive weaknesses
Strengths in cognitive and psychosocial skills
Comprehensive diagnostic understanding of the biopsychosocial impact of the injury
Extent of the brain injury and prognosis for recovery
The specific course of action needed for best therapy planning
Predictions and recommendations for independence in work, school, and home
