Product Description
PERFECT GIFT FOR STROKE REHAB & ADULT/SENIOR BRAIN FITNESS! WONDERFUL RESULTS! #1 Best Seller in Stroke Puzzle Books. 30 challenging & funny puzzle types with increasing difficulty; including popular TV shows & Hollywood movies & stars puzzles to recover cognitive and memory functions. Excellent for caregivers also! Customer: "Great gift for my mom!!!" Word, logic & math puzzles are recommended for patients by doctors, neurologists, speech & cognitive therapists to rebuild mental abilities in language, math & logic. Puzzles are essential for brain rehabilitation. Neurologist: “For stroke victims, I suggest word-guess puzzles because they can’t really do the New York Times Sunday magazine crossword puzzle.” Another word-based puzzles, word search puzzles, help to reestablish visual quickness. In addition to word puzzles, the provided shopping math & airline travel math puzzles will help to rebuild the stroke survivor's math, comprehension & logical thinking capabilities for everyday life. The puzzle book also boasts a number of adult coloring pages and picture puzzles. Medical research shows: "For the stroke patient, coloring is a good way for strengthening fine motor skills (writing, driving, sewing arts...) & to reintegrate the left and right sides of the brain. The left side is dominantly for logical processing while the right side features color graphics processing."The Diagonal Word Square Puzzles are arranged in increasing difficulty levels. The puzzle solver has to find the missing letters for short words; each row and the diagonal will spell a word. Puzzles are valuable rehab tools in the hands of people who experience the cognitive and physical deficits frequently associated with stroke. Inability to pay attention is common for stroke survivors. Other deficits may include comprehension, reading, and writing. The human brain is extremely flexible and it can be rewired for full functioning after a stroke. To learn how to pay better attention, stroke patients can solve puzzles that require focus. Others skills targeted by puzzle solving (which may improve comprehension, reading, and writing) include speech, concentration, memory, word-finding, and motor skills. When puzzles are used for stroke patients, the key is to choose a puzzle that is effective and enjoyable for the patient like brain games. The puzzles in this book are effective because they can be completed easily and in short amount of time, usually in a single sitting. Because they are not difficult, solving them imparts a sense of accomplishment. Puzzle contents stimulate emotions and memories, conversation and reminiscing. Puzzles are a great brain exercise and memory activity that captures and improves attention. Puzzles encourage the use of problem solving skills. In addition, they are fun; patients relax, smile, and laugh. Brain puzzles have been used throughout history for recreation, as medicine, as meditation, as a source of beauty.While this book is aimed directly at stroke survivors for stroke rehabilitation it is highly recommended to seniors, caregivers, loved ones and friends as well.CONTENTS AT A GLANCE: RETRAINING THE BRAIN AFTER A STROKE 1TV SHOWS WORD SEARCH PUZZLES 34x4 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLES 24MATH ADDITION DRILLS 68HOLLYWOOD MOVIE TRIVIA QUIZZES 81MATH SUBTRACTION DRILLS 108VOCABULARY BUILDER WORD SEARCH PUZZLES 121FUN BRAIN TEASERS 162MATH MULTIPLICATION DRILLS 1855x5 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLES 198MATH DIVISION DRILLS 239HOLLYWOOD STARS MOVIES SEARCH 252SUDOKU LOGIC PUZZLES 278MISSING VOWELS PUZZLES 3166x6 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLES 333WORD SCRAMBLE PUZZLES 364SHOPPING MATH PUZZLES 379AIRLINE TRAVEL MATH PUZZLES 4004x4 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLE SOLUTIONS 4165x5 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLE SOLUTIONS 4266x6 DIAGONAL WORD SQUARE PUZZLE SOLUTIONS 438SUDOKU LOGIC PUZZLE SOLUTIONS 447PICTURE PUZZLE SOLUTIONS 455-- ART THERAPY COLORING PAGES
