Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI)
 

Traumatic Brain Injury is a condition where an external force causes a change in brain function or other damages to the brain.

 

Children who have had a traumatic brain injury can expect:

 

Cognitive alterations 

- Impairments in one or more abilities, such as: thought processing, speech, physiological function, motor function, and social behavior.

- Language issues, communication deficiencies, vocabulary loss and trouble learning new things.

 

Physical changes

-Weak muscular coordination

-Swallowing issues

-Complete or partial paralysis

 

These impairments may cause a lot of irritability and frustration within the child..

 

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) induces trauma and impairs the fight-or-flight reflex.

Certain reflexes, such as the moro reflex, will resurface. Integrating the moro reflex will help to regulate a child's behavior, inner control, and stress levels, as well as allow for more integrated cognition and movement to develop over time.

Our Specialty

 

In this case we use a combination of:

 

- Reflex Integration to address the dysfunctional reflexes

- Hemispheric Integration to address the damaged areas of the brain that need the most support 

- Speech and Feeding therapy to address sucking, swallowing, speech and communication challenges

 

In addition to other cutting-edge techniques to get the best results.
