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:
- 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.
-Weak muscular coordination
-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.
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.
