Brain Forest can help superheroes of all ages with symptoms of traumatic brain injury and concussion.
With brain injury, it is critically important to understand how the injury impacted brain function overall. At Brain Forest, we measure brain function with a qEEG brain map, so that we can see the areas of the brain that have been negatively impacted by the injury. Our brain assessment and Brain Map will help identify why you or your child may be experiencing specific symptoms related to the traumatic brain injury or concussion. We will then create a personalized plan, using natural learning abilities, to unleash the power of the brain and get it back to its functional best.
