Traumatic Brain Injury
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a brain injury caused by sudden damage to the brain. No two brain injuries are alike and signs and symptoms as well as recovery time are directly related to the cause and location of your injury.
Your brain is the control center for the body. As a result, a TBI can lead to physical, sensory, behavioral, cognitive, speech and language as well as social communication issues. Often a team of therapists are assembled to work together to remediate specific physical and emotional injuries. An online speech and language pathologist is specially trained to help you in the areas of speech, language, social communication skills or cognitive communication skills.

“It was an eye-opening experience for my family to understand that because I couldn’t speak didn’t mean I had nothing to say. Through intense online speech therapy, I can now communicate and my family has learned to understand me. Thanks to my Great Speech therapist, I can now say it all.”
