What are Rehabilitation Psychologists?
Rehabilitation psychologists assist individuals in coping with, and adjustment to, chronic, traumatic or congenital injuries or illnesses that may result in a wide variety of physical, sensory, neurocognitive, emotional and/or developmental disabilities with the goal of increasing function, reducing disability and increasing participation in everyday roles and responsibilities.
What are Neuropsychologists?
Neuropsychologists focus on the nature of irregular brain behavior and how it affects the day to day life of those who are living with such conditions. At Baylor Scott & White Rehab, we know this can be a complicated process. That’s why we have highly skilled staff members with the clinical experience required to provide diagnosis and treatment.
To better serve our patients, our neuropsychology team is continually working to better understand the neurological complexities associated with a wide range of illnesses and injuries through research and further education.
