Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy (CRT) is a one-to-one community based specialty therapy that addresses the cognitive deficits that result from an injury to the brain (stroke, traumatic brain injury, meningitis, etc.), or condition  that results in problems with learning (autism, developmental disability). The Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapist works closely with the individual and identifies cognitive problems, provides education and skills training, develops compensatory strategies, and assists the individual with applying the skills and strategies in everyday activities. Main Line provides these services on a one-to-one basis in the person’s own home and community.

The Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapist is specially trained to determine the individual’s learning style, areas of cognitive strength and weakness, develop and teach effective compensatory strategies, and improve functional abilities. The therapeutic model of service(s) is based on current research. All eligible clinical staff are certified as Brain Injury Specialists through the Academy for Certification of Brain Specialists (ACBIS).

Designed to occur in the home, school, workplace, or other locations within the community, our Cognitive Rehabilitation model allows for skill development in a variety of community environments.

The goal of services is independent living in the individual’s home and community of choice.

CRT services can be provided alone or in combination with other services. For individuals living in more rural areas, tele-rehabilitation services can be provided.
