Goal Management Training is an exemplar of the cognitive rehabilitation neuroscience approach with tremendous evidence supporting its effectiveness, and is a tool we must deploy widely to help impaired individuals improve their cognitive function.

Goal Management Training is the leading intervention for executive functioning deficits, and its effectiveness as a cognitive rehabilitation program has been observed in many populations including in my own clinical research with cognitive impairment.

Jan Stubberud, PhD
Associate Professor Cognitive and Neuropsychology University of Oslo
