Accommodating the Symptoms of TBI


Accommodating a person with a brain injury means that services are provided in a manner that takes into consideration the special needs of the individual. Survivors of brain injury often experience problems with the following:

  • Attention
  • Processing
  • Memory
  • Initiation
  • Impulsivity
  • Planning & Organization
  • Mental Flexibility
  • Self-Awareness

Service providers need to be aware of these symptoms as they can interfere with treatment. Providing accommodations creates an opportunity to address potential barriers to treatment success. Our web-based training module will help service providers to recognize symptoms of TBI and develop strategies for accommodating symptoms. Bulk quantities of our training booklet are available for purchase and may be used to supplement in-service presentations.
