The aim of neurobehavioural rehabilitation is to increase independence and reduce social handicap. Many individuals who survive serious brain injury experience persisting cognitive and emotional problems, or impairments, which lead to long term disability.

NeuroBehavioural rehabilitationThe effect of such disability is a serious interference in an individual's ability to function in social roles, limiting independence, and thus possibly leading to further psychological reactivity.

We aim to provide neurobehavioural rehabilitation and improve difficulties that may include:

  • executive dysfunction
  • emotional lability
  • diminished insight
  • deficits of attention
  • poor social judgement
  • problems of impulse control

Appropriate assessment of individuals with brain injury will allow for an understanding of cerebral mechanisms, behavioural manifestations and associated cognitive dysfunction, leading to the most practical and cost effective rehabilitation.

NeuroBehavioural  rehabilitationWe work to neurobehavioural evidence-based models of rehabilitation and scientific principles.

We provide community based strategies to contain and control inappropriate and challenging behaviour, in order to create conditions in which it is possible to shape more effective social and functional skills.

We need to help those with executive weaknesses, or behaviour and personality problems, to recognise their nature and impact on personal relationships, and other social activity.

The overriding aim of neurobehavioural rehabilitation is to restore social and functional behaviours that promote independent living in the community.
