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.
“It has been well established that the most complex cognitive and executive functions, such as perception, attention, learning and memory require synthesized brain activity. When designing the ultimate treatment program to overcome deficits in these areas, we must consider the evidence that suggests communication problems between regions of the brain. In other words, the focus of treatment, in my opinion needs to be twofold: address maladaptive behavior that impedes learning and replace with functional equivalents (ABA), as well as use teaching strategies to re-synchronize brain activity (Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment).”

“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.”
