Brain Games … Ann P
Going on the theory that if you don’t use it, you lose it … Andrew has been playing brain games online and it is fascinating to watch how he is progressing most times and then suddenly he’ll take a dip … e.g. last week when he did his ‘brain game’ it dipped right down and then I remembered that was the day he had massive dental work done. While his memory and attention span levels have risen to around the 30% mark of others of his age group, his flexibility and problem solving abilities remain below 10%, so we have to work more on these.
As a carer, it is wonderful to actually be able to DO something to help!! I’m checking into how this all actually works … follow it on the Brain Games page …
