This chapter outlines the practical rehabilitation implications of current theories and models of frontal lobe function, with the aim of providing some provisional principles for the rehabilitation of the dysexecutive patient. It argues that there must be a theory of the cause of an impairment before a treatment can be designed. However, currently there is a gap between pure experimental work from which such theories might evolve and potential treatment applications. There is actually more potential cross-talk between these concerns than might at first appear. Six provisional principles for treatment are presented.

Keywords:   executive deficits, frontal lobe damage, practical rehabilitation, dysexecutive patient, impairment
