  • Thinking Well program (cognitive remediation):  instructors will combine state-of-the art delivery of our therapeutic program that addresses long-term cognitive impairment with interactive group sessions, to solidify the skills worked on 1:1.
  • An interactive white board will introduce participants with limited computer skills to the digital communication needed in today’s world, for further education, employment, and engaging in their local communities as well as the broader world.
