1: Parent of a Child with Aquired Brain damage
As a result of surgery, and complications from a benign brain tumor, my daughter suffers from an acquired deficit. This type of therapy would be awesome as she also likes to be on the computer. I would be interested in finding centers that provide this type of scenario.

2: Cognitive Therapy Access
My son is 25 and has an anoxic brain injury. He has benefited from in and out patient cognitive therapy. It is difficult for us to access out-patient therapy due to cost and time of travel. Is this program avaialable to people in New Jersey? Have a Happy Holiday Season.

Thanks for both or the first 2 postings. To find out more about possible centers providing telerehabilitation services in your area, I would recommend that you contact either your state Brain Injury Association (contact information can be found at: http://www.biausa.org/stateoffices.htm ) or the American Telemedicine Association (http://www.americantelemed.org) These services vary depending upon the state and region, and as of now there is no national standard for this. States also vary as to whether this is reimbursed or not, with about half providing coverage for services billed through medicare/medicaid.
