Last month I talked of the two ways in which C.R.T. can be given – “Comprehensive” and “Modular”. My personal opinion is that a combination of both helps individuals most. This was following a conversation with someone wanting to help their family member directly.
I hope the link to Dr. Judd’s expertise was useful.
Nowthen, as it’s Christmas, I thought it might be an idea to look at some of the online resources available. There’s stuff out there, some even quite fun, that everyone can challenge each other at.
It’s best to see this often used term as an intention, not a promise. It is used to describe exercises designed to improve precise areas of brain function. For an idea of the different options available online, click here for Phone Arena.Com’s view of their “Top 5” brain training sites. (Just under 4 minutes.) (As always, you may want to skip the ad’.)
Not saying it’s the best. Neuronation is the site I’ve most experience with. You can find your own favourite.
The first thing to do is register an email address and password to log on with. The first thing that will greet you will be three choices of subscription: 1. £11 for three months; 2. £5 for twelve months or 3. £299 for a lifetime access to all the games. But as with most things of this nature, you’ll get a free sample of tasters.
To gain access to these free samples, click the “Training” header at the top of the page. The next gives the options of “Daily Training” or “Exercises”.
On your first visit, I suggest you go straight to the exercises. These include a free exercise or two in the following catagories: “Numeracy”; “Language”; “Reasoning”; “Memory” and “Perception”.
Have a practice at each. You can time yourself, but I’d suggest building your confidence by having a go in “Learning Mode”. Pick a catagory; pick an exercise; choose the “Tutorial”; click the “Learning Mode”.
Neuronation monitors and charts your level of performance. At any time, when fatigue or boredom strike, you can come out of your chosen exercise.
Whether you’re wanting something to do yourself, or get to know and help your familiar-cum-new member of your family, these online products are a good way of doing it.
Wishing you progress throughout 2020. And a Christmas as best as best can be.
