20 Current Research Highlights Adult men typically have a greater loss of their pre- injury social roles and activities after head injury than in women. On an average rating of satisfaction with OT, patients reported an average rating on 25.21 out of 32 possible points and 91.7% said they would recommend OT to a person in need of similar help. Persons with brain injury demonstrated decreased self-awareness in relation to a control group. In addition to traditional OT, allow the opportunity for the client to rate his or her own performance before, during, and after the task.
