EFFINGHAM – The mother of a special needs woman says her daughter was helped tremendously by Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center.
On Tuesday, Casey Ralston, 21, left Lakeview with her mother, Julie Clipp, in an RV bound for a group home in Pennsylvania. Casey's family lives outside of Philadelphia.
Clipp explained that since Casey turned 21, the state of Pennsylvania will no longer pay an out of state facility and thus Casey had to move back. Casey has autism and a diagnosis of severe cognitive disability.

Lakeview’s Dr. Tina Trudel will be speaking on Neurotoxicology and the risks of living in a chemical world, as the key note address for the October 22, 2013 Maine Brain Injury Conference. This presentation will examine the impact of neurotoxin exposure, with a focus on central nervous system damage and concomitant symptoms. Common occupational and environmental neurotoxins will be discussed, as well as the effects of low level long-term exposure. Neuropsychological evaluation and findings will be highlighted. Participants will learn about the global issue of neurotoxin exposure and potential damage including: peripheral nervous system; central nervous system; combined CNS/PNS; indirect structural damage; and indirect reactive effects. Key physical, cognitive and behavioral symptoms, as well as soft signs, of neurotoxin injury, in the contexts of acute versus low level long term exposure will be identified. Specific classes of neurotoxins (metals, solvents, etc.), and their occupational and environmental risks and symptom profiles will be reviewed, along with general treatment options for more common neurotoxin exposures.
