Self-management is a program designed and available for survivors of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) who want to invest time in improving their skills in specific areas that can be challenging after a brain injury.
BIAC Advisors will work one-on-one with each participant to assess their strengths and weaknesses, identify natural supports in their life, and develop strategies for building specific skills with the goal of greater self-sufficiency.
During this six-month program, participants will meet with their Advisor for an average of 4 hours per month to work on skill-building.
Participants will have regular homework outside of meetings with their Advisor which will be reviewed each time they meet.
