TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when the head is suddenly hit by an object; an object penetrates the skull and brain tissue, or when the head is violently shaken causing the brain to become traumatized.  TBI is a complex injury with a range of and disabilities, categorized as mild, moderate, or severe.  When the brain is injured, its network of connections and mental skills (thinking, memory, attention, focus, reasoning, comprehension, and language) are impaired.  Many with TBI are easily confused, forgetful, and have problems with attention.  The executive functioning area of the brain is impacted in planning, thinking, organizing, prioritizing, and problem solving.  TBI is devastating for the individual and the entire family. 

Is this You or Your Loved One?

The Center for Disease Control  Reports 1.4 million people sustain TBI each year in the U.S. Approximately 75 percent are minor concussions with damaging consequences in daily functioning.  Currently 5.3 million Americans have a long-term need and depend on help from others to perform daily living activities due to traumatic brain injuries.

Cognitive Re-Training

The TBI client works with a trainer, one on one, doing drills and timed exercises to rebuild the neural connections and pathways to restore cognitive functioning.  Between sessions our client works on the home computer to further develop these skills. Cognitive Re-Training offers significant changes and in some cases a full recovery.
