Traditional treatment for patients in this population focuses upon the use of compensatory techniques
and the modification of one's lifestyle to promote independence.
The suggestions are ways to structure self and organize objects through compensatory techniques.
When consistently applied, those compensatory techniques enhance ability for the next step of planned performance.
When the compensatory techniques
and strategies used by aging drivers (undefined in this study; see Footnote 1) and drivers with brain injuries were compared, both groups were found to compensate for their shortcomings at the operational level by making better decisions at the tactical and strategic levels.
One of the well-established practices in rehabilitation is to teach patients compensatory techniques
for accomplishing tasks on which their performance is deficient.
