SERVICES FOR BRAIN INJURY
June 8, 2011

After suffering a severe brain injury in a motorcycle accident I wasn't sure I'd ever be able to work again. Then I went through SBI's Personal, Vocational, and Social, Adjustment program. It simulated a real-time work environment where I learned how to interact with a group and to compensate for my deficiencies. Because of that I now work part time helping people with disabilities find and keep jobs. Without SBI I'm not sure where I'd be today. The staff is patient, empathetic and encouraging. They let you be who you are. They don't try to fix you, they help you develop strategies for dealing with a world that isn't designed for people with severe cognitive deficits.
