Questions & Answers - Brain Injury

No one has ever said that my child is brain-injured. How do I know whether this course is for my child?

You may have been given one of the 350 symptomatic labels often used for brain-injured children (such as developmental delay, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, attention deficit, learning problems, persistent vegetative state, or epilepsy). These labels all indicate that there is a problem in the central nervous system. You can get all the information you need in our questions & answers - brain injury portion of every hour while doing our course at The Institutes.

Five days is a long time to be away from my child. Do I really need five days?

Yes, it is a long time to be away from your child. Yes, you really need five days. In fact, five days are not enough to teach everything we wish to teach. By the end of the week our parents understand that very well. You will arrive home understanding your child better, looking at your child with bigger eyes, and having a new respect for who your child is and what your child really needs. You will have a real battle plan that shows you exactly what you need to do each day.

Questions & Answers - Brain Injury - All Answered

questions and answers - brain injury

I have so many questions. Will there be time to ask my questions?

Our parents arrive with a thousand questions. Hundreds of those questions are answered in the lectures that are presented each day, but aside from these presentations parents have the opportunity to ask questions every 50 minutes during the course. The entire clinical staff is available to make sure that parents have the maximum opportunity to get their questions answered. At the beginning and the end of each day, parents are encouraged to come early or stay after class if they have more questions. Our goal is to answer every question (for which we have an answer) before the course ends. Wouldn’t it be great to get all those questions & answers - brain injury answered with regard to your child?
