This workshop is designed specifically for professionals, survivors, and caregivers who are interested in learning about the needs of those living with brain injuries and Traumatic Brain Injured (TBI) "wounded-warriors." An emphasis will be placed on lessons learned from Coastline’s ABI Program Cognitive & Caregiver’s Boot Camp courses. This seminar will take place at Coastline’s Garden Grove Center on January 29, 2010 from 8:30am to 1:00pm. For more information or to RSVP to attend, please call (714) 241-6214 ext. 17217. The cost to attend this event is $10.

Coastline’s ABI Program has been a leader in educating individuals living with brain injury for over 30 years. Recently the ABI Program launched a new online Cognitive & Caregiver’s Boot Camp.

  • The Cognitive Boot Camp is designed to help those living with brain injury better understand brain injury and to teach compensation techniques for cognitive and psychosocial issues.
  • The Caregiver’s Boot Camp will provide caretakers with information, support, resources and strategies for coping with the changes experienced after a family member sustains a brain injury.

Both camps emphasize identification of cognitive strengths and weaknesses, development of strategy building to compensate for cognitive difficulties, psychosocial adjustment, and community integration.

Spring 2010 Online Boot Camp Courses: Sped 300: Strategies for using PDA’s (Feb. 1-March 28 and April 5-May 30), Sped 301: Cognitive Strategy Building (Feb 1-May 2), Sped 302: A Guide to Brain Injury (Feb. 1-May 2), Sped 303: Community Re-integration (Feb 1-May 2).
