Review for Services For Brain Injury, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a surviver of a Tramatic Brain Injury, with a resulting with a "Glowscow Comma Scale" score of 4 (kind of severe), Kaiser's head trauma unit tought me how to chew my own food, how to talk (monosyllabically though it may have been at the time), and how to walk using parrelel bars.

From there (after going through Ca. Dept of Rehab.) I entered SBI, where they (thoses presently unknown to me (and I was quite interverted, afraid, and WANTING to "get well" but was timid on how to go about it). Those presently unknown enities quickly displayed hunane friendlyness, compassion, and empathy.

They helped me get to the point of (with a formal education of the 7th grade - but I read a lot) and being "Brain Damaged", to entering City College, socializing, and keeping relatively good grades.
