Kevin

Kevin is the story of a survivor of a severe brain injury who has had only a modest recovery. His marriage ended as a result of his injury and his life now consists of support work at a workshop. Despite his poor overall cognitive functioning, he still demonstrates remarkable memory and insight when talking about his current passion: sports. The marked improvement in this area has us posing the question as to whether using high interest activities, such as sports, in brain injury rehab might make for significantly better results. We termed this idea – “spectator based cognitive therapy” for severe brain injury.
