Partly, what makes the Cognitive Enhancement Center Program unique
is its’ specialized Staff/Participant relationship and interaction practices, behavioral support methods and the Program's uniquely effective operational and environmental structure.These specialized techniques and methods reach far beyond simple kindness,respect and cirriculum. They are extremely effective approaches designed to create a nurturing community atmosphere and a fun, supportive, positive and relaxed environment. This milieu has proven to facilitate independence, autonomy, empowerment and inclusion,which in turn inspires the Participant to enthusiastically continue in their program with
minimal to no behavioral incident. Sustained long term participation, devoid of negative
behavioral occurrence, allows the individual the greatest rehabilitation opportunities
possible to improve in their daily therapeutic program. This improvement often equates
into measurable therapeutic gains, but always, micro/macro improvement occurs.
The experienced, specialized Staff at the Cognitive Enhancement Center understand the physical, emotional, behavioral, psychological, and cognitive issues that face most adults living with brain injury. This knowledge coupled with our outstanding relationship building skills, interaction practices,behavior support methods, and specialized structure mentioned above, makes the Cognitive Enhancement Center Program second to none.
