Individuals who are released from therapy following a brain injury are often told that where they are at in terms of recovery is as good as it will get. Nick is proof, though, that even 20 years post-injury people have reason to hope that things can improve.
“In December of 2014, Declan was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of two. Throughout his treatment, Declan’s development began to fall behind that of his twin brother; a result of something called “chemo brain”. Over the summer that bridged pre-K and Kindergarten, Declan was given the opportunity to participate in MINDCAP’s Clarity for Kids program through Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. During the 6-months of the program, we saw improvements in Declan’s fine motor as well as his behavior. At the beginning, he wasn’t able to physically connect dots but improved immensely by focusing, looking ahead to the dots, making a plan, and persevering; all cognitive strategies used in the MINDCAP program. We found that using such strategies led to less frustration from Declan as well as my husband and myself. We have continued to bring Declan to MINDCAP over summer and winter breaks and are happy to report he continues to grow in his academic development. Declan’s favorite subject is math, one that is still difficult for him to grasp as quickly as his peers, but he rarely gets frustrated and is happy taking his time to get to the correct answer. We are extremely grateful to have found the program and hope that other cancer patients and survivors are fortunate enough to benefit from MINDCAP.”

“The training for Basic 2 was just as exciting and enlightening as Basic 1. These go by so quickly and the information gained from Jeanne and the other students is invaluable.”

“Dear Jeanne, thank you again for a week full of insight, wisdom and great fun on the FIE Basic last week. Each day I felt like I was filled to the brim with practical knowledge that has to potential to grow minds and change lives. It really was inspiring to hear stories of Reuven Feuerstein himself - what a brilliant man, huge heart - as well as your own incredible stories of mediating with these instruments in America and around the world. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into the week. You conveyed a real spark and energy. As mentioned last week, I have already started mediating Amelia on the Dots and Isabel on Identifying the Emotions.”
“User-friendly introduction to a rich and fascinating philosophy of learning.”
