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.

Bonnie Nish has compiled a collection of personal experiences of recovery by survivors of mild traumatic brain injury. Imagine being a single mom about to take your children on a family vacation. Suddenly, the van door swings shut and hits you in the head. You think, "Wow!! That hurt, but it's nothing an ice pack canít solve." A few months after this happened to Meg Stainsby, she was sitting at her familyís Thanksgiving dinner table when she suddenly recalled signing papers to sell the home she shared with her two daughters and dog in order to move into a small two-bedroom condominium.

When the survivor says things that are not accurate and is unaware that statements are untrue, families and caregivers are often confused and frustrated. Confabulation is related to changes in memory after a brain injury. But it is often misunderstood and the survivor is accused of lying. This tip card helps individuals, families and caregivers understand what causes confabulation, what to do about it and how to help the survivor. Author Dr. Tom Novack explains that confabulation is often a recollection of events that occurred in the past; however, they are not being recalled fully or in the proper time frame or sequence.
