What are common cognitive problems for KMS clients?

Cognitive problems are specific deficits that typically occur following a brain injury. Some of the most common cognitive problems we work with are:

  • Arousal or over-stimulation
  • Insight and judgement
  • Attention and filtering issues
  • Information coding and retrieval (memory) issues
  • Learning, both using old information and acquiring new information
  • Problem solving
  • Higher-level thinking skills also known as “executive skills”(initiation, planning, follow-through)

Some cognitive problems resolve themselves over time and through our rehabilitation process and others may persist and require specific rehabilitation interventions.
