Scientific research has demonstrated the importance of early intervention following traumatic brain injury, with several studies finding that intervening early in the recovery process may prevent the subsequent emergence of problems.
For rehabilitation to be successful, it must start in the intensive care unit setting as soon as the individual is reasonably stable. The online consultations offered by Neuro-Developmental Therapy Programs enables this early intervention to occur. Once the individual's medical condition has stabilised, the family is able to do the online assessment in the hospital and then immediately begin working on the therapy program.
In the critical early days and weeks following the brain trauma, the family and friends are often anxious to do all they can to help their loved one, but simply do not know what to do. The online consultation gives them the tools they need to begin working on recovery.
