The CCCABI was designed for four reasons:
- To help people with brain injuries and their families to describe some of the difficulties they are experiencing.
- To help healthcare professionals detect communication difficulties more consistently.
- To help administrators, program leaders, and funding sources to understand the effects of brain injury on a person’s ability to think and communicate.
- To help people with brain injuries to be referred to a speech-language pathologist (SLP), a professional trained to help with these communication and thinking difficulties called “cognitive-communication impairments”.
Caution: The CCCABI is a referral tool only; it is not intended to replace thorough SLP assessment or to provide a diagnosis. Once difficulties are identified the individual should be referred to an SLP for a full assessment.
I hope you will find the CCCABI to be helpful.
