Objective: This session will provide an overview of some of the cognitive and visual domains that can be addressed with service members with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in interdisciplinary therapy sessions with SLP and OT. We will discuss the process of clinical collaboration and how we treat cognition and visual symptoms in mTBI through an interdisciplinary approach.


At the end of the session, participants will be able to:1. Explain what is an interdisciplinary model for the rehabilitation of mTBI2. Describe how to treat cognition and visual symptoms through collaboration3. Summarize how an interdisciplinary approach can be used in treatment of mTBI


WHERE DID WE START- 5 staff members in TBI trailer- Multiple sites across base- Specialized care (multidisciplinary)- Traditional medical, including pharmacologic treatments, allied health therapy

holistic integrative patient and family centered
- Holistic- Integrative- Patient and family centered

WHERE ARE WE NOWServices available for concussion therapy:Traditional medical therapy, including pharmacologic treatments, allied health treatments with physical and occupational therapy, speech and language therapy. Complementary and alternative medicine (sleep hygiene, art therapy, acupuncture, mindfulness, yoga, etc.)

holistic function

speech therapy
Speech Therapy
  • Cognitive Communication Rehabilitation
  • Group treatment to reinforce compensatory strategies and social communication
  • Assistive/accommodations technology training (CAP, smart phone, apps, etc.)

WHERE ARE WE HEADED- Multiple pathways to recovery (Return to Duty vs. Return to Community)- Identify & participate in research to contribute to scientific TBI body of knowledge (outcome measures/ validate best practice models)

collaborative therapy outcomes
Collaborative Therapy Outcomes
  • Improved Preparation for Return to Community
  • Improved Preparation for Return to Duty
  • Goal setting and discharge as a team
  • Improved Goal Setting and Achievement for Providers and Service Members

CHALLENGES:- Logistics (admin barrier, provider schedules, unstaffed teams)- Medical vs. Rehab model- Provider’s willingness to participate and collaborate- Redundancy of services


SOLUTIONS:Define the leadership roles, program parameters, hiring staff, and developing an interdisciplinary team approach.
