Chapter 3 provides guidelines on how to set up a Neuropsychological Educational Approach to Remediation (NEAR) program. NEAR programs are intended to be implemented in the context of broader recovery-oriented services to facilitate linking of the specific cognitive skill and support interventions to the individual’s overall rehabilitation goals. Cognitive remediation is used to improve the likelihood that people will experience success and satisfaction in their chosen living, learning, working, and social environments. A cognitive remediation program requires clients, physical space, staff, time, startup money, and the commitment and support of the rehabilitation program and administration. The features of each of these components are detailed, and instructions and forms are provided to guide the implementation process.
