Caring and Committed Tutoring for students and individuals who have suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury
Every injury to the brain is unique. They can range from mild to severe, and affect an individual’s cognitive, physical, or sensory abilities. It is reported that the highest incidences of brain injuries occur between the ages of 15 and 24; just at a time in a young person’s life when they are preparing to meet current and possibly future academic achievements.
Even with mild brain injuries, gaps in prior learning and memory losses can occur, leaving a student lost or frustrated. The type of student they were before the injury can also have an impact on their moving forward in the rehabilitative and educational process.
According to the Brain Injury Association of America, “Individuals who sustain brain injuries must have timely access to expert trauma care, specialized rehabilitation, lifelong disease management and individualized services and supports in order to live healthy, independent and satisfying lives.”
The road to recovery from a traumatic brain injury can often be a long one, requiring patience, understanding, and a compassionate collaboration between the student, family members, therapists, and teachers.
Providing the dedicated, one-on-one attention a TBI student needs can be very overwhelming for their school system. Working with a professional tutor experienced in this area, like the ones at Westside Tutoring & Testing Services can make a significant difference in their progress.
