Neurological impairments are a group of disorders that primarily relate to the central nervous system comprised of the brain and spinal cord. Among the more common diagnostic categories and conditions are cerebral palsy, epilepsy, brain injury, and multiple sclerosis.
A neurological impairment or disability may affect an individual's speech, motor skills, vision, memory, muscle actions and learning abilities.
Traumatic Brain Injury TBI
Winning Wheels has been serving individuals with traumatic brain injuries since the early 1980's. A comprehensive program has been specifically designed to provide extensive rehabilitation services to individuals with special needs due to traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The primary purpose of the Winning Wheels Traumatic Brain Injury program is to provide a structured, post-acute rehabilitation program for brain-injured individuals in the areas of enhanced physical functioning, behavior /social skill retraining, leisure education, cognitive therapy, vocational training, and activities of daily living. This specialized program assists patients to achieve maximum potential of function and self-sufficiency.
Each participant's daily regime of physical, occupational, speech, psychosocial and recreational therapies is supplemented by both individual and small group forums as well as one-to-one counseling as needed.
Spinal Cord Injury
Winning Wheels Spinal Cord Injury Program provides long-term rehabilitative care and intensive physical, occupational and recreational therapy, to help those with spinal cord injuries to relearn the basic skills of everyday life. Counseling is also provided to patients, helping them to learn to cope with their injury and rediscover the fulfilling life that lies ahead for them.
Developing independence is especially important. Patients learn independent living skills, such as cooking, laundry and money management.
Having a spinal cord injury doesn't mean that those injured have to stop participating in fun activities. Winning Wheels' Recreational Therapy Program shows patients that they can have alot of fun -- wheelchair soccer, outrigger canoeing and bicycling to specially adapted video games.
