Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital founded its TBI program in 1984. Throughout the rehabilitation program, patients with TBI focus on achieving independent mobility and self-care activities. The program addresses problems with speech, reading comprehension and other language disorders. For some patients, group therapy may be used to overcome cognitive deficits and develop compensatory strategies. Jackson's TBI rehabilitation program assists with the patient's community re-entry process by creating situations for patients to practice new skills in real-life (supervised) environments. When appropriate, therapists conduct home visits to recommend treatment modifications. Patients also receive follow-up rehabilitation and support services in an outpatient setting.
