Accommodating the Symptoms of TBI Webcourse


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. We have developed this webcourse so that service providers can recognize the symptoms of TBI and learn about different ways to accommodate them. Free CEUs are available for certain types of service providers.
