Easter Seals Wyoming’s community-based program for adults with acquired brain injuries provides a person-centered approach to rehabilitation. Located in Sheridan, the program is designed to encourage each participant’s active involvement in their recovery process.
The ABI (acquired brain injury) program is open to individuals ages 21 and older from across Wyoming who qualify for services under Wyoming’s Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver for Acquired Brain Injury. The staff works with each individual to develop personal plans and goals. These typically involve enhanced physical and emotional fitness, social and behavioral development, home and community mobility, communication and cognitive skills, vocational skills and strategies for independent living.
The Easter Seals team includes dedicated on-site staff, as well as contracted health care and mental health professionals. Easter Seals ABI participants have access to:
- Case management services
- Physical, occupational, speech and cognitive therapy
- Psychological services
- Cognitive restructuring activities
- Educational programs
- Volunteer, job training and employment opportunities
Easter Seals Wyoming is a licensed provider of Home and Community-Based Medicaid Waiver services through the Wyoming Department of Health, Division of Developmental Disabilities.
