In brief: Experience

As usual, experience of the provider is a big factor in the success of that program. Witness the kind of recovery gabrielle giffords has had with her recovery, and that's related to the dedication and experience of her therapists.

In brief: Multispecialty

An effective brain injury rehabilitation program is multidisciplinary.
The key players are the rehab medicine physician(the team leader), physical, occupational and speech therapy. The therapy is key and each focuses on a different aspect of the recovery process. For example, speech involves communication, eating, and cognition. All of the members of the team need to work together effectively.
