Description

This new fourth edition is designed for use with adults who have suffered a stroke or other brain injury or who are affected by the aging process. While the fundamental format covering such skills areas as visual scanning, reading, observing, information acquisition, listening, memory, and abstract reasoning has remained the same, each of the individual training sections has been revised and updated with additional exercises and teacher suggestions for the teacher-learner team. More training exercises have been added, and the authors address how to use some of the new technology now readily available to enhance the rehabilitation process. The authors focus on the importance of personal choice, responsibility, health, and wellness in successful recovery. The book is designed to be most beneficial when the teacher and learner interact on a one-to-one basis, so that individual needs can be incorporated effectively into the training sessions. Additionally, the exercises encourage the use of basic learning principles such as immediate feedback and positive reinforcement while gradually increasing the difficulty level of the exercises. For each of the training sections, specific suggestions are offered to assist the teacher in finding additional exercises and activities that are personally relevant to the learner. The Thinking Skills Workbook will be a valuable tool for facilitating the recovery of cognitive skills and is written for easy use by professional rehabilitation staff, paraprofessionals, and/or family members. The incorporation of these effective learning strategies, along with the many revisions, will make the book very useful and provide for a rewarding experience for both teacher and learner.
