1. Treatment Approaches for Cognitive-Communication Impairments, Including Attention, Memory, Simultagnosia, and Prosody

Chapter 1 reviews evidence-based approaches for cognitive impairments, including attention and memory disorders, perspective taking, impulsivity, and self-regulation. In addition, it covers intervention for simultagnosia and aprosodias. These capacities are essential for independence in activities of daily living and interactional satisfaction.

2. Treatment Approaches for Other Cognitive-Communication Disorders

Chapter 2 covers interdisciplinary approaches to treatment of emotional perception deficits, group treatment approaches, and treatment of theory of mind (ToM) and executive function. Inclusion of family for collaborative interventions is also covered. The role of the family can be especially important after RH stroke when patients themselves are unaware of many of their issues.

3. Interdisciplinary Communication and Coordination of Treatment for Patients With Right-Hemisphere Stroke

Chapter 3 will go over coordination of anosognosia treatment, music therapy, communication with and incorporation of family members in treatment approaches, dynamic coaching, and group treatment approaches.
