Many clients who attend DI have neurological conditions such as stroke, MS or acquired brain injury. These conditions can affect both cognitive skills and communication skills, the result of which can be catastrophic to both the individual, their family and work life. At DI we provide structured groups to maintain or improve these specific skills and provide support and guidance where necessary.
