Rehabilitation Outcomes

The Lighthouse, Inc. uses a standardized assessment, the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI-4 or MPAI).  The Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory is a formal assessment designed to:

  • assist in the clinical evaluation of individuals with an acquired brain injury

  • to assist in the evaluation of rehabilitation programs designed to serve individuals with an acquired brain injury

  • to develop  a standard measurement/rating system that will assess an individual’s level of functionality

            The MPAI-4 evaluation measures a client’s: physical health, psychological (emotional) health, and social relationships.  The final measurement of each subscale is combined and adjusted to provide a reliable prediction of the client’s functional change over time.  Overall, the MPAI-4 assessment is designed to aid in identifying the barriers to community integration that individuals with a brain injury may experience.[1]  Simply stated, the basic MPAI-4 evaluation measures the client’s rehabilitative changes over time.
