The go-to guide for nearly 50 years for occupational therapists working with adults with visual, perceptual, and cognitive deficits after brain injury is back for a Fifth Edition.
 
Zoltan’s Vision, Perception, and Cognition: Evaluation and Treatment of the Adult With Acquired Brain Injury, Fifth Edition maintains the core foundation laid in previous editions while drawing upon Drs. Tatiana A. Kaminsky and Janet M. Powell’s 60-plus years combined of clinical, teaching, and research experience in adult neuro-based rehabilitation.
 
This best-selling text translates the available research and theory into application for practice. The result is a comprehensive, accessible, up-to-date, and evidence-informed textbook with a strong occupation-based focus, detailing occupational therapy evaluation and treatment practices for adults with visual, perceptual, and cognitive deficits after brain injury.

The courses she has taught have primarily focused on neuroscience and the treatment of adults with neurological disorders. Her research has focused on people with visual and/or cognitive deficits. She is especially interested in examining the use of everyday technology for adults with cognitive deficits after acquired brain injury.
