Accommodating a person with a brain injury means that services are provided in a manner that takes into consideration the special needs of the individual. Survivors of brain injury often experience problems with the following:

  • Attention
  • Processing
  • Memory
  • Initiation
  • Impulsivity
  • Planning & Organization
  • Mental Flexibility
  • Self-Awareness

Service providers need to be aware of these symptoms as they can interfere with treatment. Providing accommodations creates an opportunity to address potential barriers to treatment success. Our web-based training module will help service providers learn to recognize symptoms of TBI and develop strategies for accommodating symptoms. Bulk quantities of our training booklet are available for purchase and may be used to supplement in-service presentations.

We are an approved provider of continuing education credits for the following:
  • Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist Board (1.0 hours)
  • Ohio Psychological Association (1.0 hours)
If after viewing the webinar you wish to apply for CEUs for any of the Ohio organizations listed above, please complete both the post-test and evaluation for Ohio CEUs.
For any questions, please contact Monica Lichi at monica.lichi@osumc.edu.
This training is intended for aging and disability professionals who want to learn about traumatic brain injury (TBI), why it is important to know a client’s life-time history of TBI and how to implement simple accommodations to provide an opportunity to address potential barriers to treatment success. Dr. Jennifer Bogner, Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at The Ohio State University, presented this 1-hour training on April 19th, 2016.
