Service Coordination helps clients through the maze of services and ensures their needs are being met through person-centered planning. An individual plan of services is constructed and reviewed every six months to ensure goals are being optimally addressed.

Independent Living Skills Training helps individuals learn strategies to adapt to challenges from TBI by devising routines and modifications to improve daily functioning. Individuals set their goals to enhance satisfaction with their lives.

Cognitive Remediation involves training to improve basic cognitive skills, such as attention and concentration, planning and problem solving, memory, impulse control, and stress reduction.

Structured Day Program allows clients to work on individual goals within a group setting. Communication and social interactional skills are bolstered through a variety of recreational and learning activities that are tailored to individual tastes and needs. A Prevocational program option is offered that targets those skills needed to function more independently.

Community Integration Counseling helps individuals, and often families, adapt to changes in their lives due to TBI and adjustment issues.
