Introduction to My Bionic Brain®

The BRAIN BOOK® System and now My Bionic Brain® a customized life manager/day planner specially designed to meet the complex needs of persons with brain injury - both at home and at work. The system can be customized to meet the individualized needs of persons with mild, moderate, and severe brain injury.
BRAIN BOOK® System focuses on to teach specific skills that compensate for short-term memory impairment, confusion, disorientation, difficulty with organization and time management, loss of emotional control and a host of other problems associated with brain injury.
The System was invented in 1992 by Kathy Moeller, who experienced a brain injury when the car she was driving hit a bus in a head-on collision.
The Cognitive Harmonics, BRAIN BOOK® System elevates compensatory strategies to the tactical level. Students get usable tools they can immediately apply in their day-to-day life. KathyM believes that teaching strategies only goes so far. Most people with brain injuries need real-world tools.
KathyM describes the situation of learning skills with the analogy of building a house. To build a house, a person needs special tools and skills. You won’t be able to build a very good house with a hammer, a few nails and some basic instruction in house-building. However, if you have a full set of tools and know how to use them, you will be able to build a solid house.
Until now, the kind of "tool kit" KathyM developed for persons with brain injury simply did not exist. BRAIN BOOK® Systemand My Bionic Brain® is designed to last a lifetime by fostering skills transfer after basic skills have been learned. Skills training has been elevated to an art, as well, one on one and on the internet.
