How Can Apps Help People with Brain Injury?


Apps are really important for individuals
with traumatic brain injury and PTSD and other kinds of brain conditions. What I found is that they really allow individuals
to apply cognitive skills in a very practical functional way in a way other than often they
get in more traditional kids of therapies. When an individual has a brain injury they
have difficulty with organization and time management and memory and decision making. And one of the interesting things about apps
is that apps allow them to apply strategies to deal with some of those issues that they
might be facing on an everyday life. But the apps give them immediate feedback
that they can then use in order to sort of determine whether or not they’re on the
right track. Whereas if you’re using something like paper
and pencil it’s not so easy to see the results. The other thing about apps is that they’re
with them every day, all day long. And so they’re able to actually use the
applications throughout the day to ben them and to help them with some of the cognitive
struggles that they have.
