Experimental: Cognitive remediation
30 hour computer based cognitive remediation integrated in participants current rehabilitation program (school, work, day program)
Behavioral: Cognitive remediation
Cognitive remediation including feedback from neurocognitive assessment, psychoeducation about cognitive deficits, 30 hours of computer based drill and practise and strategy coaching based cognitive remediation, 1-3 collaborative meetings with cognitive specialist, participant, therapist and teacher, occupational therapist or other therapist (depending on participants rehabilitation situation) to enhance transfer of skills to daily functioning
No Intervention: Wait list control group
Participant continues in treatment/rehabilitation program as usual until 9 month assessment when participant receives the same cognitive remediation program as the experimental group.
- MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery (MCCB) [ Time Frame: Change in MCCB performance from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]Included in the MCCB are measures of the following cognitive domains: Speed of Processing, Attention, Working memory, Verbal learning, Visual Learning, Reasoning and problem solving and Social Cognition. In addition the following tests are included: HVLT-R and BVMT-R delayed recall to measure memory, TMTB (Halstead Reitan) and Color Word Inteference Test (D-KEFS) to measure executive functioning), Digit span (WAIS-III)to measure working memory, Grooved Pegboard (Halstead Reitan) to measure motor function.
- UCSD Performance Based Skilled Assessment Brief Version (UPSA-B) [ Time Frame: Change in UPSA-B performance from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
- Cognitive Assessment Interview (CAI) [ Time Frame: Change in CAI scores from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
- Social Functioning Scale (SFS) [ Time Frame: Change in SFS scores from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
- Calgary Depression Scale [ Time Frame: Change in CDS scores from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
- Global Assessment of Function (GAF)- split version [ Time Frame: Change in GAF scores from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
- event related fMRI [ Time Frame: Change in BOLD fMRI signal from baseline to 4 months ]Event-related fMRI will be performed to measure neuronal activity during a spatial working memory tasks and an executive planning task. All fMRI data will be collected on Ullevål`s 3 T General Electric Sigma HDx scanner.
- Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES) [ Time Frame: Change in RSES scores from baseline to 4 months and 9 months ]
