Some puzzles are large print. Large 7,000 words vocabulary! Word, logic, picture & 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." Word search puzzles help to reestablish visual quickness and vocabulary. 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 better functioning after a stroke. Others skills targeted by puzzle-solving (which may improve comprehension, reading, & 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 a short amount of time, usually in a single sitting. Puzzle contents stimulate emotions and memories, conversation and reminiscing. Puzzles are a great brain exercise & 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.
