Rehabilitation Medicine

Brain Injury Programs

Keeping the long term needs of our patients in mind, we offer several specialized programs to help improve basic skills development, problem solving, and emotional regulation. Our programs are designed to support our patients through evaluation, treatment, and therapy and are coordinated by neuropsychologists and vocational counselors as well as occupational, physical, and speech therapists.

Phase II Program

Phase II is a rigorous four-month long outpatient cognitive rehabilitation program for people with mild to moderate brain injuries who need help to build their critical thinking, social communication, organizational, goal-setting, time-management, memory, and problem solving skills.

Our patients also learn how to effectively manage their emotions and learn how to optimize brain health by participating in relaxation practices that promote well-being. Participants can also receive guidance on vocational options that are available to them.

Throughout the program, we offer attention-training and weekly advice sessions that are centered on methods about how to complete patients’ rehabilitation goals. Families of patients are also invited to attend a team meeting to discuss progress and treatment goals and are encouraged to participate in family education lectures to support their family member’s mastery of skills at home and in the community.

Bridge Program

Our Bridge rehabilitation program is designed both for those with relatively new brain injuries, with goals of improving stamina and basic cognitive skill development, as well those who have been living with a brain injury for some time, and can benefit from learning new ways of accomplishing daily tasks and goals.

Our skills development curriculum focuses on creating-self-expression, critical thinking, effective use of a calendar, emotional regulation, positive social communication, self -expression, and writing skills. In the Bridge Program, we also promote well-being through classes that emphasize brain health, participation in recreational opportunities, and relaxation practices.
