Brain Injury/Traumatic Head Injury

When disease, or the effects of chemotherapy/radiation, or head injury due to sports injury or to automobile or accident occurs, the learning journey is interrupted, sometimes in devastating ways. At the Vancouver Learning Centre, intensive and comprehensive programs have helped children, adolescents and adults achieve “personal best” outcomes. We are here for the long term and have achieved some remarkable outcomes well beyond expectations.

To see the process and programs available see the neuropsychological and educational assessment and the personalized targeted teaching program. Dr. Geraldine Schwartz has long-term experience in working with victims of motor vehicle accidents and their teams of caregivers.

  Red Flags for Brain Injury

If a brain injury has occurred, even without the overt loss of consciousness, due to accident or sports injury, or motor vehicle accident, the following symptoms may occur:

  • Memory loss of parts of the content of the curriculum
  • Fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and other health complaints
  • Lower achievement than previously attained
  • Lack of independence in studying, preparation, or organization
  • Depression or sadness that was not present before
  • Withdrawal
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty with peer and family relationships

Young people who suffer concussion are often unaware of the seriousness of the problem for their future. They return to their sport or other sports too early. They are very vulnerable to serious life-lasting injury with repeated concussions, and they are more at risk once they have had the first one, especially while they are healing.

Next Steps

  1. If you would like to have answers as to what can be done, you can book a complimentary interview with Vancouver Learning Centre Director Andrew Taylor by telephone at 604-738-2277 or by e-mail.
  2. If after you are fully informed through the interview and by reading this website you are interested in proceeding, Andrew will provide you with an assessment date to begin the process.
  3. If you have further concerns or questions you can speak to VLC principal and senior psychologist, Dr. Geraldine Schwartz, either by telephone or by booking a further personal complimentary interview.
  4. The assessment will provide a clear statement of the student’s cognitive and educational strengths and weaknesses along with a detailed program that is offered as a proposal. The program is delivered by the Vancouver Learning Centre’s highly qualified teaching faculty, one-to-one.
  5. If you are wondering whether the Vancouver Learning Centre experience would be useful for your circumstances, you may book a preliminary telephone discussion with Dr. Geraldine Schwartz by calling Andrew Taylor at 604-738-2277 or by e-mail.
