Concentration-Attention-and-Mental-Speed-Rehabilitation-Task

This cognitive rehabilitation software program was designed by James Japp, a neuropsychologist in the UK, for individuals with acquired brain injury. Software generates random sets of exercises that require matching a target item by number and/or color. By giving the patient structured tasks, the therapist can measure performance for time and accuracy which are documented in a performance history.

Tasks can be set for varying length of time and difficulty, giving the clinician flexibility for customizing a program that is challenging but not too easy. The user has to hold the instructions for each activity in short term memory. Completing the tasks requires the patient to use selective, divided and sustained attention as well as decision making and information processing.

Not What I Expected: My Life with a Brain Injury (I didn’t know I had!)

Recovery from her physical wounds was all that seemed to matter back in 1977 when Sara’s legs were badly broken in car crash that upended her college graduation and shiny new career plans.

Imagine living your life with an undiagnosed brain injury. No one told Sara Lewis about the “severe concussion” noted by a doctor at the hospital. So she lived for nearly 3 decades with a brain injury she didn’t know she had. During those years, frustration over thinking problems grew. Wrong turns, misunderstandings, and defeats at work and at home led to emotional and behavioral meltdowns that are the hallmark of so many brain injuries. Public awareness was growing, but not fast enough to save Sara from ruining her career, losing friends, and becoming more and more isolated.

Even after her traumatic brain injury was diagnosed, it took another decade and another trip to graduate school to become a speech-language pathologist for her to understand its impact on her life. Acknowledging and adapting to her brain injury has finally freed her to live her life fully as a survivor of a brain injury.
