You know--the hallmark, I guess, of people with TBI is working with memory, attention, and behavioral issues. Memory and attention are fairly easy to understand. There are a lot of strategies and interventions to work with them. But they're very common, and people work with them. The other issue is working around behavioral issues because we often don't realize that our behavior is mediated by our brain, and how our brain processes information. So helping people to increase their awareness of what kind of behavioral changes they're exhibiting, helping other people around them understand what kind of behavioral changes their loved one is exhibiting, and coming up with ways to monitor and be able to intervene and to improve some of those situations for the individual. Those are the more common ones. Some of the less common ones that we see sometimes are some kind of visual deficits, not 20-20 vision, but how you interpret visual information, how you accommodate to perhaps depth perception problems or to focusing problems, those kinds of things. You can get some inner ear and some balance, some body position difficulties. Sometimes we'll work with those. Those are less common. The hallmarks really are the memory and the attention and the behavioral changes.
