Purpose Too evaluate the effectiveness of two rehabilitation techniques for unilateral spatial neglect, contra-lesional limb activation and sustained attention training, on impaired activities of daily living. Methods Two single case, time-series designs incorporating baseline, intervention and post-intervention phases. Results Significant improvements were observed in both neuropsychological measures and in the independent performance of everyday activities coincident with the start of training. The benefits were well maintained during the post-training period. Conclusions The results support the use of the two techniques in achieving functional goals for unilateral neglect patients.
