Brain Injury Webinar: Therapy in the Community

Brain Injury Webinar: Therapy in the Community is proudly presented to you by Brain Injury Association of North Carolina's Online Learning Center. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Live Webinar Date: 9/22/20 A creative, multifaceted, and interdisciplinary approach to brain injury rehabilitation is essential to overcoming the obstacles faced with traditional, “one-size-fits-all” care and limited funding for TBI services. This webinar will be promoting the benefits of multiple disciplines working in coordination instead of separately. It will discuss values of community integration and how various goals are addressed with functional, therapeutic tasks (building on restorative and compensatory strategies). The webinar will further investigate everyday tasks at home with a brain injury and how these methods can be modified to encourage engagement.
