PDF Version of the PTA Manual.
This therapy manual (developed by Dr Jessica Trevena-Peters, Dr Adam McKay and Prof Jennie Ponsford) details skills (activities of daily living) retraining for individuals in post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) following brain injury. This intervention guide is based on an evidence-based approach. The manual provides background information regarding PTA, an outline of the evidence underpinning the approach, and guiding principles for intervention delivery, particularly procedural and errorless learning. Activities of daily living addressed in the manual include personal care (bathing, grooming, dressing), self-feeding, and light meal preparation. Recommendations regarding management and assessment of agitation, PTA assessment, and goal setting are also included.
