Contributors from leading rehabilitation programs and centers come together in this unique handbook to provide expert guidance into management techniques for a variety of diagnoses and clinical problems.

A final section evaluates diagnostics, modalities, equipment, and technology to explore topics of EEG, EMG, neuropsychological evaluation, tracheostomy, and more.
Throughout, chapters feature core definitions for the disorder or problem, its etiology and pathophysiology, diagnostic approaches, treatment methods, functional prognosis and outcomes, and suggested order sets in a systematic manner for targeted access.
