Attention Process Training APT-3 A Direct Attention Training Program for Persons with Acquired Brain Injury

The APT-3 includes an extensive range of attention exercises appropriate for people with mild to severe attention deficits due to acquired brain injuries. Target populations include adolescents, adults and veterans. Unlike the APT-1 and APT-2 programs, the APT-3 is a computer based program promoting efficient data collection and analyses and treatment planning. The Kit includes a USB drive with customized software that can be used on either a mac or PC. It includes 2 practice drives for clients. The program runs from the USB drive and does not stay on the user's computer. The set of 2 manuals contains a clinical overview, research evidence, discussion of therapy principles, detailed instructions and guidelines for assessment and treatment, as well as sample scoresheets for all therapeutic activities and tasks.

Parents' Guide to Sports Concussions

Parents need guidelines on when their child can return to school activities and return to play or sports after a concussion. Although a concussion is a “mild” brain injury, there is nothing mild about it. It is a serious injury that can have temporary or long-term consequences for a child or youth. This comprehensive but readable book has guidelines on sports concussions. It was written specifically for athletes' parents to help them support and monitor their child's symptoms and recovery. It includes the most up-to-date information available, including

  • short- and long-term symptom lists
  • what to do when symptoms linger
  • how concussion testing works, and
  • the best return-to-play guidelines.

Parents will also hear about guidelines from experts on concussion support groups, how to choose the right helmet, and how to communicate effectively with their child's physician, coach, and teachers.

Everything a parent needs to know about their child after a concussion can now be found in one place: The Parents' Guide to Sports Concussions.
