Brain Injury and the IWBMC™

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care® (IWBMC™) specifically targets the areas of the brain affected by brain injuries. In discerning which brain areas have been impacted, we deliver an individualized model of care capable of re-wiring and re-networking the brain’s pathways. The brain can heal and regenerate lost function. Clients with brain injury diagnoses may often experience difficulties with:
  • Global functioning
  • Seizure disorders
  • Sensory processing
  • Mobility
  • Communication
  • Cognitive abilities
  • Self-regulation
  • Independence within activities of daily living

How the IWBMC™ Supports Brain Injury

Related Disorders

Based on the type and severity of the injury, these incidences vary in their effects on the client and their overall level of functioning. Brain injuries alter the brain’s neuronal activity, physical structure, electrical activity, and communication pathways.

The IWBMC™ serves clients impacted by brain injuries and their accompanying complexities by harnessing the brain’s neuroplasticity and ability to heal.

Diagnoses may include:

Brain injuries are categorized as follows:

Our Person-Centered, Whole-Brain Approach

Evaluation & Assessment.

The IWBMC™ Evaluation considers seven domains and uses 1,300+ assessment metrics to analyze neurodevelopmental progression indicators – often the root of systemic challenges – combined with standardized academic assessments, clinical observation, family reporting, qEEG Analysis, and Nutritional and Physiological Consultation.

Individualized Plans.

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care® (IWBMC™) acknowledges the complex interplay between brain health, efficiency, and organization – combined with clients’ physiological health and well-being, learning style, and emotional-behavioral-relational experiences – to develop an optimal, therapeutic path forward for each client.

Progress Tracking.

With AHAVA’s database of 4,000+ therapeutic activities, each individualized program is tailored to the client’s needs. Daily data tracking captures clients’ progress, allowing ongoing modification of programs to uphold the appropriate levels of intensity, frequency, and challenge point progression to create lasting, positive changes in the brain.

Learn About Our Approach With Brain Injury

The doctor told me, ‘I need you to understand. She will never walk like you, she will never talk like you – your daughter can be the best that she can be, but she will never do those things like you,’ But now, I see her talking, I see her walking, she’s started jumping, she’s started running, and I see her so happy – I am so glad we’re here and found this place.
