Youth Brain Injury Assessment and Monitoring
How It Works
Jarrod Snell's High School Football Concussion Story
Jarrod Snell suffered four concussions in one high school football game. During his recovery, he missed a year and a half of school and rarely left the house. His mother struggled to find solutions. Jarrod joined a Center for BrainHealth concussion research study, and after participating in specialized brain training, his grades improved and so did social aspects of his life.
This program provides evidence-based services for evaluating, monitoring and maximizing the potential for people of all ages with brain injury, partnering with families and their care teams to equip individuals for success in their home, school, work and community environments.
NOTE: This is not a medical or diagnostic service. The assessment does not involve brain imaging (MRI, CT Scan, SPECT, EEG, etc.), medication or any other procedure.
Cognitive Gains From Gist Reasoning Training in Adolescents With Chronic-Stage Traumatic Brain Injury
This randomized controlled trial (RCT) shows how months or even years after traumatic brain injury, SMART™ has the potential to help adolescents improve certain cognitive impairments once thought to be long-lasting.
Individuals with a TBI demonstrate changes in their brain's connections following a strategy-based cognitive training program called SMART™.
A SMART Approach for Enhancing Higher-Order Cognitive Functioning Following Sports and Recreation-Related Mild TBI in Youth Using Telepractice
Findings from this study demonstrate SMART™ tactics can remediate higher-order cognitive processes following mild traumatic brain injury and help prevent negative, long-lasting impacts.
