After we experience a brain injury many things change that we may not understand.
What was once familiar, now seem unrecognizable.
As a result we may feel discouraged, disillusioned and depressed.
But there is Hope
We can create hope in our lives.
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell
Creating Hope and Dreams Again
What I share through my below Zoom, Power Point and Video Presentation may help you to create hope and those dreams. Create hope and dreams in ways that work for you, after your brain injury and stroke.
Below is a link to the Zoom Presentation shared with Brain Injury Associations, Brain Injury Clubhouses, and other Organizations.
Power Point Presentation
Below is a link to a Power Point Presentation that I am available to present at your upcoming Conference or in another Venue.
Below is a Video Presentation of the Power Point Presentation
Neuroplasticity, Setting Goals and Creating Hope After Brain Injury and Stroke Video Power Point Presentation
I created a video presentation of the power point presentation to share the information, within the power point presentation in a different format. A format for individuals who learn through watching. I created this presentation with 15 seconds between each slide; however, you can stop and start the video presentation at any time to read each slide at your own rate and pace.
How I Use the Principle of Neuroplasticty
How I use the principles of neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways and brain reorganization.
In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2021 I was fortunate to have had several individuals record presentations.
Because of a shoulder injury and Covid I was not able to record in 2019 and 2020.
Presentations of my development using the principles of neuroplasticity to develop new neural pathways and brain reorganization through repetitive mirrored movements.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Bruce Lee
“Research your own experience. Absorb what is useful, Reject what is useless. And add specifically what is your own creation.” Bruce Lee
The Goal — Being a Work in Progress
The goal has been to improve my ability to mirror the same abilities on both the non-dominant side (left side) of my body with the dominant side (right side) of my body. As in the below demonstrations, I engage both sides of my body (my hands, arms, elbows, legs, knees, and feet).
I engage both sides of my body to improve my gross, fine motor skills and muscle memory. I engage both sides of my body to improve my dexterity, hand-eye coordination, agility, balance, stamina, precision, focus and awareness. I engage both sides of my body to improve my skills and abilities.
I engage both sides of my body to improve and enhance the quality of my life and well-being. I engage both sides of my brain and my body to create.
Create Your Own Program
In the event that you have not begun, I would encourage you to create a program. Create a program that will empower you to create neural pathways and brain reorganization. Brain reorganization through repetitive mirrored movements on your dominant and non-dominant sides of your body. Brain reorganization to improve and enhance your quality of life and well-being.
