What is a typical program?

Rationale for the approach used.

The impact of a brain injury on neurocognitive functioning can range from very mild to severe. Oftentimes, mild impairments are not identified immediately after injury and only noticed later when they present problems in functioning. Although many of the milder difficulties may resolve in time, they can result in significant long term problems. Mild injuries of the developing brain can result in significant deficits as the brain matures, and as the individual “grows” into the area of injury. Timely interventions and treatment can facilitate neural plasticity (healing) and decrease and/or reverse the effects of the injury. Neurocognitive rehabilitation helps to maximizing the potential of the individual and improves overall neurocognitive outcomes following a brain injury.


Brain areas affected by head injury include:

Attention
  • Concentration
  • Processing Speed
  • Executive functioning
  • Visual spatial perception
  • Visual spatial integration
  • Language and speech
  • Learning
  • Motor coordination
  • Memory (working memory, immediate and long-term memory)
  • Psychosocial functioning
  • Psychoemotional functioning
  

These changes present as:

Poorer school performance
  • Behavioral and social problems at school
  • Irritability, aggressiveness and high levels of frustration
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty concentration,
  • Difficulty playing with peers and marinating social relationships
  • Withdrawal from social interactions
  • Sadness, anxiety, and mood changes
