This week’s resource is the Traumatic Brain Injury Model System. We have been talking about ways to increase your brain’s ability to recall and process information after a TBI, and this site has some good data that can help with the process.
Run by the University of Alabama, this Website provides activities that are created to enhance cognitive function in people with brain injuries. According to their introduction page, “Each activity provides a group of tasks listed by their level of difficulty…you can select activities you feel might be appropriate and increase the level of difficulty by selecting appropriate task as progress warrants.”
They include 48 activities, a skill index that organizes the tasks according to which thinking skills are used and an appendices that has additional resources. You can choose to practice your Fine Motor Control, Attention/Concentration Skills, Memory-Oriented Skills, Reasoning/Problem Solving Skills, Visual Spatial Skills and Language Skills.
We found this site to be both helpful and easy to use. Let us know what you think!
