Welcome

Welcome to the Brain Injury Help Section for the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. Whether a brain injury results from a trauma such as auto or bicycle collision, a fall, sports injury, or medical event such as a stroke, embolism, or loss of oxygen, you will have access to the information you need to learn about brain injury and behavior analysis here at Behavior.org.

Our webpages describe the various aspects of brain injury and many of the behavioral challenges to everyday activities. Sometimes these challenges may be prevalent immediately after an injury; however, it is not uncommon for a person to exhibit problems many years after an injury. These problems may range from confusion and fatigue to severe agitation, aggression, and depression.

You will learn about some of the ABA techniques used in the treatment of brain injury, such as reinforcement, shaping, fading, prompting, fluency, errorless discrimination training and stimulus control.

Many of these techniques can help teach and strengthen daily skills, as well as reduce challenging behaviors that interfere with rehabilitation and successful progress.

History

Our science dates back many years with contributions from early physiologists, experimental psychologists, and others who conducted groundbreaking experiments using controlled environments to study the behavior of individual subjects. Based on this research, Applied Behavior Analysis has emerged as a comprehensive approach to addressing many of problems encountered by individuals, societies, and cultures. Positive and robust changes in understanding behavior has lead to advances in treating children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental / Intellectual Disabilities, Geriatrics, and Medicine, as well as the Brain Injury treatment.
