Ignorance causes misdiagnosis and therefore ineffective (or no) treatment for children with Brain Injury - Particularly ones with less obvious "tells". Professionals, parents, educators, and others are not familiar with common symptoms that point to BI. As a result, too many kids are thrust into a life of systems that "house" them, but seldom have time, knowledge or resources to adequately treat them. In turn a disfunctional circle forms, robbing these children a quality of life and independence they may have achieved. These patterns as so many fall through the cracks, follows them into adulthood.

Profiling becomes an issue based on ability level both outside and inside the brain injury community. Needs based services, advocacy groups, and others are more sympathetic to those obviously impaired. The others, deal not only with their injury but proving themselves - Even if they don't recognize the issue themselves. Many are labeled as mentally ill, bad kids, yet another case of ADHD and not identified by the root cause of brain injury. 

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.

More will be revealed! This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."

We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers, which takes a good bit of Warrior!
