Description

This definitive volume provides an up-to-date comprehensive and concise analysis of the use of Errorless Learning (EL) principles in neuro-rehabilitation. It covers the historical foundations, current understanding of underlying mechanisms that support learning, and its use in memory and language rehabilitation as applied to particular populations across the age span. It addresses questions of efficacy through analysis of research comparing EL with other recognised learning methods and principles. This central EL resource will be invaluable for students in psychology, neuropsychology and therapy professions as well as health professionals working in rehabilitation.show more

Review quote

For the neurologically compromised individual with cognitive impairment, traditional approaches to learning and training were mostly unsuccesful, while frustration often led professionals to avoid trying something new. Although animal research showed that errorless learning could be applied succesfully to typically developed, healthy humans, the idea that errorless learning could be a beneficial rehabilitation strategy in the neurologically impaired patient, including those with neurodegenerative disease, was thought impossible. Catherine Haslam and Roy Kessels, who have lead the field over the past decade and a half, provide the most up-to-date information on the topic, from basic research to clinical application. (Erin D.
