Individual therapy allows for patient specific impairments. Individual therapy is also an opportunity for the therapist to evaluate your progress and problem solve your ongoing intervention. In recent studies it has been found that those receiving both individual and group therapy on average made larger functional gains. However, unfortunately not all patients are considered suitable for group therapy. Various factors may be important considerations in determining the best therapy delivery mode for each patient, including patient functional level (e.g., arousal, orientation, awareness, memory, problem-solving, attention, agitation, communication deficits, physical ability), and treatment objective (e.g., strength, endurance, range of motion, memory, swallowing, social and cognitive skills).
