Outpatient Brain Injury Programs
Shepherd Pathways is a comprehensive, community-based rehabilitation program for people recovering from brain injury. It is a program of Shepherd Center, one of the top-10 ranked facilities in the nation for medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with brain or spinal cord injury. We offer different types of outpatient brain injury services, including several specialty programs.
Our specialty outpatient brain injury programs include:
Adolescent and Young Adult Brain Injury Program
This program is specifically designed for adolescents and young adults who have experienced an acquired brain injury. Emphasis is on age-appropriate treatment, education, peer support, outings, family and sibling support, neuropsychological interventions and return to school.
Center For Diagnostic Evaluations
The Center provides evaluations for people needing an assessment of their functional capabilities for legal reasons or to coordinate care for people with more complex problems. Each evaluation is individualized based on the need of the client and/or their representative.
This program offers evaluations for individuals who sustain a head injury and display symptoms of dizziness and imbalance related to the interruption of the vestibular system (inner ear). A physical therapist provides treatment to reduce the symptoms of dizziness and improve balance and walking. This treatment helps the person achieve their maximum level of independence.
The specialized Swallowing (Dysphagia) Program meets the needs of people who have mild to complex swallowing problems. Neurological injury/disease or direct trauma to the swallowing mechanism may cause swallowing problems.
