Individuals who are released from therapy following a brain injury are often told that where they are at in terms of recovery is as good as it will get. Nick is proof, though, that even 20 years post-injury people have reason to hope that things can improve.
“It has been well established that the most complex cognitive and executive functions, such as perception, attention, learning and memory require synthesized brain activity. When designing the ultimate treatment program to overcome deficits in these areas, we must consider the evidence that suggests communication problems between regions of the brain. In other words, the focus of treatment, in my opinion needs to be twofold: address maladaptive behavior that impedes learning and replace with functional equivalents (ABA), as well as use teaching strategies to re-synchronize brain activity (Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment).”

“My child is someone that has had deficits in areas of learning that although addressed for years, he has never been able to master. He has struggled with anxiety, frustration and all the behaviors and learning issues that come with that. Life has been a struggle, something that you survive but you don’t enjoy or thrive. Since starting MINDCAP, my child has begun to learn the deficit areas that no other therapy has been able to address. He has more expanded language, better retention and understanding as well as clearer verbal communication. He still has a long way to go, but we currently are at the beginning of a journey of accomplishment. Which is very exciting since he is currently 25 years old. We have experienced positive changes in how he lives his life. Frustration levels are dropping. He laughs freely and can enjoy his life. His personality, which was driven by anxiety and stress is much more relaxed and carefree. We are very excited to see him come alive and be able to willingly participate in life. We know that we have a long way to go, but to see that we are on the right path for our child is priceless. It gives us hope for a brighter future for him. ”

“I strongly believe that if physicians know that this type of program exists to address the cognitive and behavioral needs of the patients, they will be much more likely to perform developmental screening. Indiana has a dismal rate of timely developmental screening and I know we can do better. My goal is that all children are physically, mentally and spiritually healthy and educated to their highest potential. MindCAP is a critical resource we need to begin to ensure all of Allen County's children are ready to embrace their academic potential.”
