How do I prepare for my appointment/visit?
You will be contacted to schedule your first visit and provided with the appointment time and location.
It may be helpful to have a support person with you.
Wear comfortable clothing. We recommend wearing layers as the temperature in the building can vary.
What will happen at my appointment?
The Occupational Therapist (OT) will ask you about your brain injury. They will include questions about your medical history, lifestyle, and goals. They will complete an assessment of your physical, cognitive, perceptual, and psychosocial functioning to determine the impact of your brain injury on your daily activities. They will develop a treatment plan with you to improve your function. The Occupational Therapist will measure your progress regularly and adjust your treatment according to your needs.
Will there be any follow up after my appointment?
The need for follow up and whether you should be referred to other services will be discussed during your visit(s).
