Mark Wedell, Owner of Wedell Home Therapy is certified in a Neurobehavioral Evaluation called ( A- ONE). Neurobehavioral Evaluation is a process that analyzes neurological/behavioral/perceptual and cognitive aspects of function through scoring and interpretation of basic daily functions for individuals afflicted by strokes, traumatic brain injuries or other neurological processes. Strokes, traumatic brain injury and neurological diseases can cause a change in neurological functions in young adults, adults and geriatric adults.
In additional to the Neurobehavioral Evaluation certification, Mark Wedell works with individuals to regain their function. Through the provision of graded achieveable activities that build task skills, confidence, self awareness, skill refinement, strength, motion, proper sensory processing function is regained over time. Mark begins by identifying potentials for active movement, active thought processing potentials, potentials for modifying behaviors and potentials for proper visual/perceptual skills modifications. One of Mark’s concerns is customized sensory diets, identifying nutritional modifications and plans to include custom exercises which enable greater function and independence.
Mark has enjoyed working with individuals in their homes for over twenty years. A-One is an are of expertise for Mark.
