Kathy & Mike Peyton
This is Mike and Kathy Peyton. Kathy's legacy lives on with the Seminole Spirit, a speech language support group she co-founded with her brain-injured ex-patient Mark Halvorsen. Mike Peyton is significant contributor the Seminole Spirit Group.

The Seminole Spirit Brain Injury Support Group has been a sanctioned group since January 2005. We meet every other Friday in Roswell Georgia at the North Brook Methodist Church at 50 Houze Way Road.

Mission Statement:

The Seminole Spirit Brain Injury Group is a Social Interactive Speech Language group that consists of brain injury survivors motivated to improve their communication and cognitive skills as well as support each other in a nurturing environment. The group also receives support from Speech Language Pathologists throughout the year to provide education on topics related to TBI and cognitive language skills and to assist them in developing activities to practice social communication and language skills in a nonclinical setting.

Purpose:

To help restore and support use of communication compensatory skills, provide education, and support individuals who have sustained an Acquired or traumatic brain injury through the recognition and encouragement of the human spirit through the journey of wellness and purpose.

The SEMINOLE SPIRIT defined:

  • Seminole Spirit Meetings led by a member who is a cofounder of the group.
  • Support provided by Speech Language Pathologists throughout the year via consulting with group leader, members, and providing education and support during some meetings.
  • Practice activities learned in group or individual therapy sessions attended by some members (some members attend therapy groups at Ga State University or other facilities).
