Through a series of six modules, taught at Virginia Tech, Northern Virginia Center, individuals partake in classes to learn about lifespan issues related to the long term needs of individuals with TBI and their families. Topics include self care and self reliance, compensatory strategy development, daily routine development, health, meaningful nutrition and leisure education, productive focus, support team development, and practicum and mentoring opportunities.
