THINK TALL — DON’T FALL

A program to build skills and boost abilities


Thursday, March 2nd — 2:00 PM (Arizona Time)

Registration for the program is required at least 24 hours prior to your first class.

YOU CAN —

  • Improve memory and academics: reading, writing, math
  • Improve organization skills and attitude
  • Promote a more efficient mind-body connection
  • Be more alert and aware of your surroundings with increased brain stimulation
  • Feel sure-footed and at ease walking up and down stair

This class is specially designed for survivors of all types of brain injury or brain trauma. 

With a series of simple, adaptable movements that activate the mind and body for whole brain functioning you can improve your balance, coordination, strength, flexibility, and reflexes. In addition, your mental clarity and mood will improve.

The instructor is adept at providing accommodations for those with limited mobility or who use a wheelchair.

Is This Your First Class?

Join us for this first preparatory session. You’ll meet the Brain Injury Alliance staff who help run this weekly program, Janice Podzimek and Kristin O’Shaughnessy. You will have a chance to learn how to set up your space to properly participate in the classes. Learn what you will need to have with you for each week.

Then you’ll get a chance to hear from our own Suzy Albanese, OTR/L as she discusses Falls Prevention. She’ll be looking at the relationship of falls to acquired brain injuries and vice versa. You’ll gain tips on how to reduce person-based as well as environmental-based risks of falling. We will also provide resources for those seeking in-home evaluation of fall risks post-injury.

Classes instructed by:

S.Christina Boyd is an Educational Kinesiologist, Licensed Brain Gym® Instructor and Master Practitioner of NLP. A movement therapist for 28 years, she works with children, teens, adults, and couples to facilitate personal change.
