Congratulations to the eight Special Tree team members who recently passed the exam to become Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS). They join 120 Special Tree team members who have earned the voluntary certification since 2004. It requires class time, extensive preparation, and passing a national exam administered by the American Academy for the Certification of Brain Injury Specialists (AACBIS). Initiated by the BIAA the AACBIS program was established in 1996 to improve the quality of care given to individuals with brain injuries through the continuing education of those who work in the field. Special Tree team members are strongly committed to learning about best practices and to applying this knowledge to client care and rehabilitation. The CBIS certification is voluntary and is available to all levels of professionals.

Things are looking brighter around Special Tree with the installation of hundreds of new LED light fittings. Our fabulous Facilities Maintenance team have converted hundreds of conventional bulbs to LEDs at the NeuroCare Campus, Industrial Operations Center, Troy NeuroSkills Center, and The Leadership Center and it’s paying off in big ways.
Since the conversion project began in 2017, LEDs have not only produced better light quality, these highly energy-efficient lights have helped Special Tree cut their carbon footprint while also saving money.
