NeuroRestorative Academy Helps Sam Plan for her Future
Sam came to NeuroRestorative Academy in 2019 when she was 19 years old to help with her behavioral outbursts and physical aggression. Sam is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and has sensitivity/sensory aversion to loud noises. Having difficulty in her home and community, her family turned to NeuroRestorative to help Sam live a healthier, happier, and more independent life.
Sam came to NeuroRestorative Chicago Academy to work on PT, OT, and Counseling to help develop daily living and behavioral skills such as organization, planning, budgeting, money management, and cooking. Since joining the program, Sam has shown an eager willingness to participate in personal development courses and vocational work. As a result, her money management and practical problem-solving have improved exponentially.
Sam, now 22, has found a passion for party planning after helping plan field trips for the students to locations in the Chicago area, such as the Museum of Science and Industries, Navy Pear, etc., where she uses her organization, money management, and planning skills from therapy. As a result, she has plans to become a party planner.
