People who have sustained brain injury are administered standardized neuropsychological tests designed to evaluate brain dysfunction. Phenomenology is a descriptive method that seeks to explicate people’s lived experience and hence goes beyond the realm of mere brain function. Our method of neurophenomenological assessment mitigates the dangers of reducing people to brain dysfunction, and facilitates collaborative assessment of people who have brain injury. We offer examples of how clinicians can supplement their understanding of brain‐injured people, and we report concrete suggestions that relate to these clients’ everyday lives.
