Neuropsychologists and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

In the USA, 155,000 seniors will suffer TBIs and probably many more, unrecognized mild TBIs. So why talk about seniors (or patients over 65)? Everybody gets into automobile accidents, everybody falls.… Continue Reading

This blog has been committed to providing the latest news on a very hot topic. The public is paying attention, and Congress wanted answers. The news is not good. Children… Continue Reading

I have previously discussed the role of vision therapy in helping head injury patients, especially those who are having difficulty reading. Vision therapy is a set of vision exercises and training performed by optometrists with unique equipment in their… Continue Reading
