Adults with a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) often show deficits in higher-level cognitive abilities or executive functioning. Executive functioning refers to a set of tasks that allow individuals to plan, reason, problem solve, inhibit inappropriate responses, multitask, and hold multiple goals in memory. These abilities are also essential for language processing. This presentation covers common executive function and language processing deficits following an acquired TBI. Further, the impact of these deficits on day-to-day function will also be discussed.
