A lot of speech therapists and occupational therapists know about Lash & Associates Publishing / Training company. They have a huge amount of books, DVDs, CDs and resources online and that clinicians can buy. They can use these things for rehabilitation to support our recoveries.
But guess what! Lash & Associates has a couple secret gems for all of us!
1. Brain Injury blog: www.lapublishing.com/blog/
Visit that site to read lots and lots of interesting posts written by people with experience with brain injury. Some of the bloggers have a brain injury, some are family or friends, and some work with folks with brain injury. This blog is really exciting. It’s not all about showing off research and medical information. These are stories from people who want to share their opinions, ideas, experiences, and wisdom with the community.
