About our Galveston Program


Established in 1982, The Transitional Learning Center (TLC) at Galveston, Texas is a pioneer in the field of post acute brain injury rehabilitation.  TLC provides adults with acquired brain injury comprehensive, interdisciplinary services needed to re-enter the community. 

TLC is located in the heart of a charming, historic neighborhood, complete with beautiful Victorian homes and palm trees, and only a short walk from the beach.  The TLC campus is located on a public transit route and is only a few blocks from grocery stores, banks, the Strand entertainment district, and the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) hospitals and clinics.  TLC’s access to the community allows patients to practice important living skills in a real world, community context, better preparing them for re-entry into their respective discharge communities. 

Most patients participating in the TLC program live on-site, allowing the treatment team  observe behavior and provide skilled therapies throughout the therapy day.  Most patients receive 5-6 hours of skilled therapy per day delivered by a licensed/certified TLC staff member.  Therapeutic Assistants (TA’s) provide direct care and reinforce treatment team goals after completion of the therapy day and on weekends after the completion of therapeutic recreation outings. 

TLC provides a wide range of therapeutic services, based on patient needs.  With a nursing staff on campus daily, TLC can provide medical monitoring and care for patients who are medically complex.  For patients who are higher functioning physically and cognitively, and who have the potential to live independently and return to school or work, TLC provides on-site apartment trials and vocational rehabilitation services.
