This article addresses the history of interventions for visual attention/neglect and communication problems in patients with right hemisphere damage. Several key studies that are representative of the types of interventions that have been researched in the area of visual attention and perception are presented. In addition, clinical studies directed toward the nature of the communication deficits and their implications for rehabilitation are summarized. For the most part, the procedures in these latter studies have been clinically used but not empirically tested for their effectiveness.
