Going to School / College
As survivors overcome many of their physical, medical, cognitive, and/or psychological challenges, they heighten their potential to successfully pursue educational goals. Survivors can usually excel with necessary educational accommodation.
Reintegrating into the school/college experience can be exciting and rewarding. It can be equally anxiety provoking and may even cause one to feel that he/she is better off just dropping out. Working with a treatment team that understands a survivor’s interests, goals, and cognitive capacities allow for realistic goal setting, training, and minimizing the potential for failure. Rigid perceptions such as “I’m stuck in a residential facility” or “I’m not good enough” can degrade motivation to the extent that a survivor may feel like just giving up.
At NeuroInternational we understand the intricacies of this process and support our survivors’ educational endeavors through a variety of core, as well as, integrated auxiliary services.
