Welcome to the 2016 Brain IDEAS Symposium, Hosted by the Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) in Denver, CO.
Meet Karen Custer. Karen Custer, PTA is the Founding Director of StART (Stroke Active Recovery Therapy), an intensive therapeutic and recovery program for stroke and neuro injury survivors.
Over the last 6 years, Karen has worked with over 100 survivors of stroke and neurological injuries, helping them to recover their physical and daily activities and to have a fulfilling life. She created a program that integrates intense physical therapy with social and cognitive skills that has enabled survivors to go from wheelchair bound to skiing or driving cars.
IDA’s 2016 Brain IDEAS symposium focused on Brain Disorders, Brain Health, and Brain Therapy. Nine expert speakers delivered dynamic, science, and story-filled talks on relevant topics including Alzheimer’s, Mental Training, Humor Therapy, Stroke, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Dyslexia, ADHD, Attention Deficit Disorders, Learning Disabilities and Phantom Pain. Expert-led panels were included in each section allowing attendees to interact with presenters. Our lunch program honored three experts in Healthy Living, Research and Innovation, followed by Top-Ten Billboard recording artist Billy Mclaughlin.
