We take a personalized approach to brain training or neurocognitive rehabilitation. Using the information from our assessment, we develop a therapy program that is fun, interesting and that helps our client address cognitive impairments.
Brain training can involve:
- Paper and pencil workbooks
- Computerized games and programs
- Functional tasks like meal preparation, playing musical instruments, etc.
Brain training takes a lot of practice. Our occupational therapists set up the training program and often use rehabilitation support staff for skill practice. We can supplement personal coaching with automated prompts and routines using pikPlumTek™. Family members can also be trained to supplement the training.
Many of our therapists have completed the Brock University Certificate Training Programs, which are offered in collaboration with the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA).
