Staff: Terri Hudler-Hull, M.S.

Overview

This project is aimed at helping persons with TBI to find meaning through self-expression. This project partners with The Orange Show Foundation, a local organization for artists, whose mission is to promote the artistic expression of ordinary people. The project brings together artists (musicians, painters, sculptors, theater performers, dancers, etc.) and individuals with TBI at organized classes in a variety of media. The artists leading the classes are aided by physical, occupational, speech, and music therapists with a specialization in TBI.
