Brain injuries can result in lifelong physical, cognitive, and behavioral changes, which can slow progress toward rehabilitation goals and independent living. Behavior analysts add value to interdisciplinary teams for patients with a brain injury by developing both skill-acquisition and behavior-reduction programs throughout the continuum of care (i.e., acute, post-acute, long term).

Brain injury rehabilitation is one of many applied behavior analysis (ABA) subspecialties. To learn more about ABA and its application in other subspecialties, check out the About Behavior Analysis web page.
