Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brain Injuries

The Brain Injury Program works to minimize the effects of cognitive and physical disabilities. The Rehabilitation Center's goal is to return the individual to a productive lifestyle within their home and community. Individuals with a traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury experience functional limitations that may include difficulty walking, speaking, or eating. These individuals may be more forgetful, may have difficulty understanding directions, or be unable to complete assignments at work or school.
