At Constant Therapy, we firmly believe that there is no replacement for a clinician when it comes to providing speech therapy. However, there are situations when, unfortunately, people in need of speech therapy do not have access to a clinician. Perhaps insurance money has run out, or wasn’t an option to begin with. Perhaps transportation is an issue or there just isn’t a clinician nearby. Constant Therapy provides research-based tools for therapy when services are not being provided.
Sometimes therapy can seem repetitive, boring, and not applicable to every-day, functional life skills. But many therapies for Aphasia, TBI, Dementia, and Learning Disorders have a direct correlation with everyday skills that you use and need constantly! Read this week’s blog to find out just what those connections are!
Each month, we calculate which tasks were most popular with clinicians depending on sector. Check out our most popular tasks for June 2014 below! Who knows, maybe your colleagues will inspire a new task trial! Happy Constant Therapy using!!
Many people experience extreme loneliness, and feelings of isolation after Aphasia. When language and communication are impacted, involvement with family, friends, and the community can be extremely difficult. This week, we provide a few ideas of how to avoid that loneliness and rejuvenate social connections while forming new ones within the Aphasia community.
In our last post during Aphasia Awareness Month, we wanted to emphasize the importance of patient empowerment, and speak to the amazing results we’ve seen when patients are involved and excited about their own therapy!
This week, in keeping with our focus on Aphasia for Aphasia Awareness Month, we explain how and why categorizing and feature analysis tools are so effective for persons with Aphasia!
This week’s blog will give you an overview of aphasia and stroke recovery, which is often misunderstood. Spread the word, raise awareness, and join us in providing support for persons with aphasia.
We like to post the top tasks that people are using on the Constant Therapy app! Nothing like a little peer inspiration to get you interested in a new task!
The foundations of stroke treatment and brain injury rehabilitation rely on the concept of brain plasticity. In a nutshell, brain plasticity refers to the changeability of the human brain. We can mold our brains through practice and learning. In scientific terms, this is called “experience dependent plasticity” (for more on this, check out this article by Dr. Kleim) It’s really quite phenomenal. We see these changes easily in the brains of infants; one day a baby babbles nonsensically, and suddenly, seemingly overnight, a first word is born.
