Program Details

The Watson Centre Society for Brain Health offers two program options; half-day and part-time. Depending on the injury, our staff will recommend the best choice based on individualized factors.

Half-Day

Our team includes brain and neuroplasticity (brain change) specialists. We work with each of our participants to better understand their learning profiles and to develop plans that work to meet their learning needs. Our team utilizes the ABI Wellness Program which uses aspects of the BrainEx™ Program in order to increase function in specific areas of the brain that may be damaged or underperforming.

Participants work on four blocks of 50-minute BrainEx™ Program brain exercises and have one 45-minute physical activity block. They also participate in a 20-minute meditation period and bi-monthly clinical counselling. These cognitive and physical blocks are tailored to each individual based on his or her abilities.

The half-day program runs from Monday to Thursday, from 8:15am to 1:00pm

Clients have access to:

  1. Cognitive Capacity Building Programs (up to four cognitive areas)
  2. Physical Exercise
  3. Mindfulness Meditation
  4. Clinical Counselling

* Times subject to change

Part Time

In addition to our half-day program, WCSBH also offers a part-time program. Like the half-day program, the part-time program is custom tailored to each individual’s health goals after a full cognitive assessment. In addition to the cognitive remediation exercises based on the BrainEx™ Program, the part-time program also offers aerobic exercise, meditation, and optional clinical counselling, but is condensed to run six hours per week for three to six months depending on the need of the client.

The part-time program has two options: Monday and Wednesday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Clients have access to:

  1. Cognitive Capacity Building Programs (one cognitive area)
  2. Physical Exercise
  3. Mindfulness Meditation
  4. Clinical Counselling

 * Times subject to change

At the Watson Centre Society for Brain Health, we understand that brain change is a reality.
