Processing Speed after Brain Injury

This Tip Card will help one understand the function of processing speed, recognize problems, and develop activities that address impaired processing speed. Organic dysfunctions contribute to impairment without the person being aware there is a problem.

Processing speed improvements are achieved by challenging an individual to think, move, and respond quicker through training and experience. Even though it affects the survivor, everyone is encouraged to be involved in the therapy process.

Visual Perception after Brain Injury

Visual perceptual problems after a brain injury are common. This Tip Card, written by Kimberly S. Hutchinson, Ph.D., and Lawrence S. Dilks, Ph.D., taken from their two-volume set -- Cognitive Rehabilitation of Executive Functions -- focuses on visual perception -- what is seen in the environment and how it is given meaning. There are two parts to visual perception:

  1. vision and everything seen.
  2. brain interpretation and management of information.

Improving visual perceptual skills or learning new strategies to work around problems takes patience and practice in order to see changes and turn strategies into habits.

Kimberly Hutchinson, Ph.D. and Lawrence Dilks, Ph.D., have created a valuable tool. By using the tips contained in this Tip Card, the individual experiencing perception problems will experience improvement and caregivers/family members will be able to give assistance as needed.
