Proven Track Record of Delivering Successful Outcomes

Demographic Information: Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury
The charts below indicate the demographics, diagnosis and chronicity of injury for those currently being served in the spinal cord programs (N = 72). Of those served, 27% of those with spinal cord injury also demonstrated neurobehavioral impairment. Behavioral impairment negatively impacts outcomes. Of those in residential services, 47% are able to return home when transitioning to the outpatient programs; 7% of those in residential services had to return to the hospital for acute medical management.

Chronicity Impact: Outcomes are significantly influenced by chronicity (Lewis, Horn & Russell, 2017). As such, when persons are able to access neurological rehabilitation care sooner, the individual has the highest chance of achieving successful outcome to live in the community and resume a productive lifestyle. Lengthier time since injury slows the process of improvement and emphasizes greater use of compensatory strategy development with continuous skills reinforcement.

Residential vs. Non-Residential Care: In addition, residential services help to progress a person from needing 24-hour care to no longer needing constant supervision. At the non-residential level, continued behavioral adjustment is noted. The application of skills is the focus of non-residential care.
Efficacy of Treatment. The results demonstrate a significant and meaningful change from admission to discharge with post-hospital care. This level of change is sufficient to produce reduced disability leading to successful community discharge.
