    Hi there,

     Are you familiar with any cognitive rehab therapies that are designed specifically for brain injured/ neuro. impaired individuals?  There are specific programs where they  focus on Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy (you may have to find a local agency that specifically provides this type of service for neuro. impairments).  Try inquiring at a rehab. center where they help people with brain injuries etc.  In my experience they are hard to find but do exist.  Another great resource would be The National Center For Child Development www.nacd.org  If there is a center near you all the better!  But, if not they can still  help.  They even set-up homeschool plans specifically geared toward this type of inquiry (autism, neuro. impairments etc). 

     I hope that this helps!

    With You In The Journey,
