Abstract

An approach to rehabilitation that uses the microcomputer to teach traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients domain-specific knowledge and skills is outlined. With a training technique called the method of vanishing cues, patients are taught information and procedures that enable them to perform complex functions of daily life both at home and in the workplace. Advantages of computer-based instruction are summarized, and vocational tasks that provide the best possibilities for TBI patients are suggested. Issues of transfer and generalization and ways to circumvent them are also discussed.
