CBR-Solutions was founded by Simone Friedman, Speech-Language Pathologist and Natalie Kalymon, Occupational Therapist.
Our story began over 24 years ago when Natalie completed her graduate school thesis on the World Health Organization's (WHO) Community Based Rehab (CBR), and Simone completed her thesis on the WHO’s, International Classification of Functioning and Disability (ICF). Both WHO models shine a light on the importance of providing functional, meaningful therapy to clients within the cultures and communities within which they lived.
To follow this model, Natalie and Simone created a training manual that provide the necessary skills to local support people in rural communities. These skills can then be used to work with and engage individuals who have mental health, cognitive and physical challenges to live meaningful and productive lives. ical challenges to live meaningful & productive lives.
