There is a great New York Times article on how one US Army soldier with TBI and PTS as learned to find the positive elements of his new life. One area he has learned to address is organization. Part of the article details his organization strategy which is something we at Blue Marble are interested in. Post-IT notes, small notebooks and a calendar are essential items for those with short-term memory challenges. Are any of you using electronic devices to help you through issues associated with TBI?
Blue Marble's Treasure of Bell Island encourages players to use a similar strategy to successfully complete the game. At the end of the intervention, hopefully players can take the skill learned in TBI and use them in their daily lives. Treasure of Bell Island is due to realeas in Summer of 2012. You can read more on the project here.
While it is a long article it is definetly a good read and if you are unfamiliar with the TBI/PTS process, it is an eye opener.
