-During the first six to nine months post brain trauma, medical stabilization and the rehabilitation of gait, balance, motor functions, and speech are essential.
-These skills are often referred to as "lower level functions."
-Frequently, that is where most outpatient day neurorehabilitation programs end.
-Afterwards, "higher level functions" involving the restoration of logical thinking, problem solving, memory, and emotional and behavioral balance must be addressed.
-The optimal time to rebuild these skills, which are essential for independent living, is six to twenty-four months post brain-trauma.
-That is the focus of our new program "Resilience after Brain Injury."
