Betty is the story of a college girl who suffers a severe brain injury in a drunk driving accident. With accommodations, she was able to return to school and finish her dental hygienist program. While she did have significant success in ultimately working as a hygienist, as the practice of dentistry became more and more technological challenging, she had progressive difficulty keeping up. We cover her rehabilitation, including speech pathology and occupational therapy.
While Betty does have significant frontal lobe deficits ongoing, she did get married years after her injury and has managed to maintain a long-term marriage.
