After an accident, cognitive rehabilitation therapy is an important part of stroke and traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. This refers to the process of relearning cognitive skills that were lost as a result of the injury. Often times, if skills can taught to help a patient compensate for their loss. An important part of reworking cognitive skills is the use of cognitive stimulation. When a patient stimulates a certain ability, this will help train them to use different skills used to carry out a specific task. The ultimate goal for your patient is for them to get back the quality of life they had before their accident. Through the use of cognitive rehabilitation, you can help them live independently again.
The Four Steps to Cognitive Rehabilitation:
- Process training
- Strategy training
- Functional activities training
There are four different major steps to cognitive rehabilitation. HappyNeuron Pro has developed tools to help with steps two and three, process and strategy training. Functional activities training refers to utilizing steps one through three and applying them to everyday life.
One of HappyNeuron Pro’s software activities called, “I Remember You!”, focuses on visual memory. Your patient will be tasked with memorizing people’s names and faces. This activity will help your patients remember the names of people they meet in their everyday lives, and help them to live independently after their accident.
