TLC Success Story: Tony Strueby

Since opening in 1982, the Transitional Learning Center has enjoyed many successes with our patients.  Tony Strueby is one of those success stories.   Tony’s traumatic brain injury caused him to suffer significant deficits in speech and mobility which impacted many areas of his life.  With the help of the TLC staff, Tony was able to improve and adapt.  He has done so well that he has returned to working and driving.  Read more about Tony’s journey in this linked story from the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS):

For those unfamiliar with DARS, it is a Texas state agency which provides funding for treatment and medical devices for Texas residents who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.  DARS has enabled many of our patients to receive treatment who would not otherwise have been able to do so due to a lack of insurance or having insurance that would not fund treatment.  As receiving treatment is vital for post-injury improvement, please click on the link below to see if you or a loved one would qualify for services through DARS:
