Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

Thirty percent of concussions are suffered by children, but the only international guidelines for recovery currently in existence are for adults.  Professor Nicola Starkey from the School of Psychology at Waikato University talks to Lynn Freeman about her new research into how best children and adolescents can recover from concussion.   Nicola has been awarded $1.1m by the Health Research Council to conduct a study with 600 children and adolescents aged 5-17 years from across the Auckland and Waikato regions.

Why you should only do ONE thing at a time, c

Living with Head/Brain Injury (TBI)

Yesterday I was making a sandwich when I thought I’d make a coffee (or was it the other way round?), so spread the coffee on the bread!

Why you should only do ONE thing at a time, c

Shared by “the domestic disaster and total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #

Who says men can’t multi-task!

# and thinking of/trying to “pop out “ a tiny fart whilst doing all those activities simultaneously??

“The impossible we do immediately. Miracles take a little longer.”
