The assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury consists of an interview, cognitive testing, and observation. Ideally, an interview with the client’s family and/or caregiver is encouraged. We use standardized and non-standardized assessment tools for the specific areas in question, along with an assessment of the client’s environment. This is a highly individualized assessment and techniques are based on the injury and client’s needs. We identify rehabilitation strategies based on our client’s goals and design a functional rehabilitation treatment program that is tailored to them.
Our individualized treatment programs focus on our client’s re-learning practical skills needed for daily living.
These can include:
- Cognitive rehabilitation
- Communication skills development
- Psychosocial counselling
- Training and support with activities of daily living
- Vocational and academic rehabilitation
- Recreational/leisure skill development
- Counselling and education about brain injury
- Return to Work Programs
Our goal is to assist our clients in gaining increased independence and confidence, and help them reintegrate into their community.
