One of the most important things for improving the health of a TBI-challenged individual is to identify the challenges so they can be known. Often, because of the difficulties that occur with communication, this does not happen I think we can all agree that if problems are not identified, they can’t be addressed.
Using this interactive journal will provide an easy-to-follow format resulting in 26-weekly “progress reports” that can be shared with doctors, therapists, teachers family members, coaches, and friends. This will not only ensure that everyone is on the same page but bring a sense of relief, peace, and validation to the struggling.
A brain-injured individual often withdraws. Explaining one's thoughts and feelings is difficult for many reasons. Due to impaired cognitive functions, simply thinking of the words needed to communicate may be impossible. Weekly word banks are provided to fill this need. As the concussed person is able to accurately express their difficulties and concerns, an effective plan of action may be established. It is called an “invisible injury” for good reason. Using this will make the invisible able to be seen and a faster recovery insured.

Anyone struggling with brain injury recovery
Why is this helpful?
It is not unusual for one's brain to “be stuck” when asked a question. Sometimes the needed information is not produced at that time or for days. Having this record of what has transpired throughout the week and why from the perspective of the one experiencing the symptoms is not only helpful it is necessary.
Is this really necessary?
If the problems are not articulated, they can’t be addressed. The only one who really knows what is happening is the person experiencing the difficulties. Without help to do this, problems will remain problemmatic.
