Coastline’s ABI Program has developed a unique curriculum to address these special needs. The ABI Program emphasizes cognitive retraining, socialization, and career development to promote individual responsibility and independence. Students in the program learn strategies to compensate for deficits in verbal skills, memory, figural skills, critical thinking, attention, and organization. With a strong focus on emotional adjustment to brain injury and appropriate psycho-social skills, the program teaches students to apply these skills to practical, real-life home and work environments.
