Description:

A specialized rehabilitative treatment program for persons with brain injury. Classes are continuous and designed to meet each client's individual need. Assists brain-injured people in reaching their optimum level of independent functioning through accessible, affordable services. Sample goals/objectives include re-education, socialization, communication and referral for special college programs, independent community living and/or competitive employment. Assessments are done to graduate clients from one program to another. Also, ongoing information and referral service, support groups and advocacy/care management are available for families and/or caregivers. Adult Day Health programs assist severely injured clients as they begin rehabilitation. Typical goals are to increase communication, attention, concentration and listening skills, and to initiate social interaction. Professsional services include speech and occupational therapy. They also assist in maintaining cognitive stimulation at a consistent level using a variety of experiences. Examples include cooking, crafts and other activities of daily living. Also incorporated are group exercises addressing memory, improved cognition and social skills. Independent Living Skills Training is designed to address social, behavioral and cognitive issues for clients who may be able to maintain a volunteer position but are not employable at a given time. SBI's computer-aided learning specialist helps to evaluate this group for vocational service. Personal and Social Adjustment (PSA) is specific to vocational training. The group works in a feedback/support setting and is exposed to simulated work experiences. The PSA program is supported by the state of California Department of Rehabilitation. Vocational rehabilitation counselors work directly with SBI staff on a case-by-case basis. Touchstones and Supported Employment provides job coaching and employment support both on and off the job. An after-school program is available on a case-by-case basis. Support services are offered for parents and teachers.
