Common challenges and Applied Behavior Analysis
Injuries to the head can contribute to significant permanent disabilities. A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a form of acquired brain injury resulting from physical force to the head (e.g., fall, sports injury, motor vehicle accident). The severity of a brain injury can range from mild to severe injury that can result in coma or even death.
Common challenges following a traumatic brain injury include difficulty in processing information, impaired judgment and reasoning, difficult or challenging behaviors, and socially inappropriate behavior. These struggles can lead to exclusion from social events, education and even employment opportunities. When injured, these deficits can become apparent in the months or even years following the injury.
Behavior Consultants works with adults and children who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, often from a motor vehicle accident. We work with clients, families and all care providers post-injury to assist them in getting back as close to their pre-accident levels of functioning as possible.
