Neurobehavioral System Of Care
Our neurobehavioral programs offer highly specialized services designed to enhance an individual’s participation in their rehabilitation program by empowering each person to participate in daily and community activities as independently as possible.
Individuals with brain injury sometimes find it challenging to manage their emotions and behaviors. Everyday challenges or issues that would typically lead to mild frustration for most people can often become a much larger obstacle as a result of a person’s injury. Our neurobehavioral program helps participants learn practical and effective self-management strategies that allow them to better manage their behaviors and reaction to a range of situations.
When an individual demonstrates behavior changes resulting from a brain injury, it can have a significant impact on their care and treatment. In many traditional settings, behavior intervention is viewed as a distinct process and something that should be addressed prior to rehabilitative treatment for brain injury. Not only does this method delay treatment, but it often results in an individual being incorrectly classified as “unable to improve.” At NeuroRestorative, we integrate behavior intervention into the participant’s overall plan of care. This unified approach ensures that all challenges are addressed in a timely and appropriate manner during the rehabilitation process, increasing the potential for success.
Our neurobehavioral support system meets an individual’s support needs based on the unique form, frequency and magnitude of their behavioral dyscontrol.

Intensive Neurobehavioral Evaluation & Treatment (I-NET)
Our most intensive level of support (offered in Florida, Illinois, Arkansas and Virginia)
Highly specialized programming designed to aid individuals who require intensive supports due to ultra-high frequency, high magnitude behavioral dyscontrol. The focus of this program is to gradually and progressively reduce supports via therapeutic programming to promote independent application of functional skills.
Discharge Criteria: Demonstration of successful functioning with progressively decreased “intensive support” for a period sufficient to show use of skills to self-manage, and successful trials of reduced levels of support within the I-NET program. To recommend a safe discharge, participants must demonstrate a decrease in MPAI-4 scores in the areas of irritability; novel problem solving; impaired awareness and inappropriate social interactions and rate these domains of functioning with scores less than 4.
Community-Based Neurobehavioral Services (CBNS)
Behavioral support in a community environment
Programming supports individuals who have either accessed Intensive Neurobehavioral Evaluation and Treatment (I-NET) services and discharged to a community based behavioral support program or who present with pervasive behavior/cognitive dysfunction which does not rise to the ultra-high frequency, high magnitude acute level. The focus of this program is to increase positive behaviors in group environments.
Discharge Criteria: To recommend a safe discharge, participants must demonstrate a decrease in MPAI- 4 scores in the areas of irritability; novel problem solving; impaired awareness and inappropriate social and rate these domains of functioning with scores less than or equal to 2.
Locations and Settings
NeuroRestorative’s neurobehavioral programs are offered in a range of program settings that include varying degrees of staff assistance. While some participants may require 24-hour supervision, others are able to benefit from more individual time. Our interdisciplinary treatment team develops an individualized treatment plan tailored to the goals of each participant. Treatment plans may include behavior modification, socialization skills training, substance abuse treatment, family therapy, physical management programs and more.
