Assistive Technology for the person with Brain Injuries

Clients with traumatic brain injuries, strokes, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, chemobrain, lupus, and other conditions typically face memory, organization, executive functioning, energy, goal-setting/motivation, and self-regulation challenge. Training patients to use smartphones and tablets as cognitive prosthetics as well as using apps can improve independence by addressing all these areas of cognitive challenge in a manner that is convenient and non-stigmatizing. This presentation will include information about a variety of apps that can be used to re-train and/or compensate for the majority of cognitive deficits experienced at work, home, and school, and learn how to use them yourself in the rehabilitation process.
