Efficacy of Individual Versus Individual and Group Outpatient Therapies

Abstract:
This study investigated the efficacy of a post-acute TBI rehabilitation program that included a community group component. Using a pseudo-randomization process, 30 subjects participated in individual SLP therapy or individual SLP and community group therapies and were followed for one year post-discharge. Data analysis revealed the following: 1. No statistically significant cognitive-linguistic differences between groups pre-intervention; 2. No statistically significant differences in test performance pre-intervention; 3. Subjects who received individual and group interventions had significantly better cognitive-linguistic test performance on Woodcock-Johnson Analysis-Synthesis 12 months post--intervention; 4. Satisfaction was significantly greater in subjects who received individual and group interventions versus individual only; 5. There was no association between satisfaction and cognitive-linguistic outcome on cognitive-linguistic testing.
