Abstract

Date Presented 04/07/19

Adults with ABI on an inpatient rehabilitation unit were significantly less accurate and efficient, used fewer strategies, and followed fewer rules, compared to healthy controls on the short Weekly Calendar Planning Activity (WCPA-10). The WCPA-10 was quick, feasible, and provided functionally relevant information on those that exhibited mild to no cognitive impairments on a cognitive screening tool, highlighting the importance of performance-based tools in identifying functional cognitive deficits.
