Abstract

Following efficacy research supporting intensive treatment in chronic brain injury, this study investigated an interdepartmental, university-based, intensive treatment program. Eighteen participants composed the Intensive, Weekly and No Treatment groups. Results suggested that the Intensive Group incurred significant gains on the CADL-2 with the strongest communication gains 6 weeks post treatment. Additionally, the Intensive Group reported more daily post-treatment happiness and communication satisfaction than the Weekly Group with improved ambulation following 3 weeks of modified Tai Chi. Results suggest that university training programs may offer an effective, cost-effective service delivery option for this population.
