Special Focus On: Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
One of our proudest achievements at The Speech Therapy Centres of Canada is the success we’ve had with individuals with communication issues developed as a result of an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
Individuals with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) may have difficulty on many different levels of communication.
Many parts of the brain are used for communication. Some help you understand what others are saying or writing, and others form your own thoughts into speech or other forms of communication. Injuring any of these parts may make communication difficult.
An Acquired Brain Injury may be the result of an accident such as a car crash, sports injury, or fall. Many brain injuries are also acquired as a result of a stroke, tumour, aneurism, surgery, or any other trauma to the brain.
Acquired Brain Injury related communication challenges require highly focused therapies which we have been practicing for many years. More than anything else, treating those with an ABI involves patience, as well as an understanding of the challenges an individual with an Acquired Brain Injury is experiencing. We develop custom therapies that not only match the needs of communication challenges of individuals with Acquired Brain Injuries, but also address the emotional and self esteem issues associated with brain injury recovery or brain injury rehabilitation.
There is great hope for individuals in need of services. Should you or your loved one have a communication challenge that you feel may have developed as a result of an Acquired Brain Injury, we encourage you to reach out to us. We use many communication development techniques and strategies to help individuals with an Acquired Brain Injury to move forward with their lives.
The amazing team at The Speech Therapy Centres of Canada helps those with an acquired brain injury in Ontario. You and your loved one will always receive the support, therapy and encouragement you need.
