Remediation of deficits is one approach used by occupational therapists in the treatment of clients with acquired brain injury (ABI). This retrospective study examined outcomes after participation in Cognitive Perceptual Motor Retraining (CPM) of clients with ABI and identified demographic and injury characteristics of clients that were associated with outcomes. CPM was delivered as part of the standard treatment and was not designed for research purposes.

The rehabilitation of persons with brain injury is complex, often requiring comprehensive services from several rehabilitation professionals to ensure that multiple problematic areas are addressed. This article introduces and describes Cognitive Perceptual Motor (CPM) retraining, an approach to the treatment of brain injury utilized by occupational therapists at Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center and at the Michigan State University Rehabilitation Medicine Clinic. Developed by Madhav Kulkarni, Ph.D., O.T.R., CPM has been utilized for the remediation of deficits in sensory-motor, perceptual-motor, and cognitive functioning immediately following the acquisition of mild to severe brain injury. This approach has also been extremely successful for individuals several years post injury or those who have been discharged from traditional forms of rehabilitation.
