The Department of Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Psychology at the Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation (BIR) offers a variety of services to assist patients and medical providers in the identification and understanding of the physical, functional, cognitive and emotional difficulties related to physical illness, injury and disability.
Our goal is to improve the functional living skills of persons recovering from disabling medical illness or injury through intensive, research-based assessment and treatment. Services may be provided on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on the needs of the patient.
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. The rehabilitation psychologists at BIR are skilled in applying their psychological knowledge and understanding on behalf of individuals with disabilities and society through research, clinical practice, teaching, public education, development of social policy and advocacy.
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 BIR, 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.
Our staff are skilled in a variety of areas with specialties designed to promote accurate assessment as well as effective intervention.
