This course will review current evidence in brain injury rehabilitation; building from the neurophysiological impact of brain injury to the development of an evidence-based ‘framework or intervention’ that is applicable across ages and contexts.  Strategies and techniques to address specific symptoms will be reviewed; including the process of customization to the client’s specific needs.  The course will close with a discussion of emerging trends and technology in neurological intervention.

At the end of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Identify neurophysiological correlates of symptoms post brain injury.
  • Identify symptoms, functional implications and strategy options that may be customized to client need.
  • Learn to apply a ‘framework of intervention’ that may be used across age spans and symptom severity.
  • Implement and adapt context-specific functional strategies to the client’s symptom and environmental demands.

Being offered in:

Minneapolis, MN – December 5-6, 2015

Richmond, VA – December 11-12, 2015
