Why homework is good for your brain after a stroke

Does your recovery journey sometimes feel out of control?

Constant Therapy homework can help you regain a sense of control in your recovery journey and empower you to take charge of your own path. Incorporating homework into your routine can help you see improvement in your speech, language, and cognitive skills. A couple of hours of practice per week can be one of the most critical things you can do for your recovery. While progress toward your goals is important, focusing on maintaining that progress is also crucial. Being consistent in a comfortable home setting will keep you motivated. Homework will always be there to help you stay on track! 

If the idea of homework still has you on edge, here are four reasons why you should make Constant Therapy homework an integral part of your week: 

1. More practice = optimal recovery outcomes!

Evidence shows that people who practice 4 days a week experience more significant improvement in their speech, language and cognitive abilities compared to less-frequent users. The best way to do this is to create a schedule that works for you and your routine. Your choice to open up your Constant Therapy app and get to work makes a considerable difference. Making Constant Therapy homework part of your routine will keep you focused and working towards your specific goals.  

2. Recovery journey control– Do therapy on YOUR time 

Many things can get in your way and make it hard for you to dedicate time to your practice. Constant Therapy homework gives you more flexibility and allows YOU to be the driver of your recovery and progress. When and where to do your homework is YOUR choice. What’s more, Constant Therapy at home eliminates constraints such as clinician availability, insurance, or traveling to the appointment.

3. Visualize your practice in your environment and general life 

Home is where you spend a lot of your time. Doing homework in your most familiar environment can help you apply what you learn to your everyday activities. The exercises and practice you do can translate to the things around you. Generalizing your practice to your everyday activities is a meaningful way to visualize your progress. Whether it is memory practices, matching, or speaking, seeing your recovery in the acts you do daily can be very encouraging. 

4. Share your recovery journey with loved ones

Homework is a fabulous way to involve family, friends, and caregivers in your recovery journey. Caregivers enjoy when you share your personalized progress data available on your Constant Therapy dashboard. People at home can also keep you accountable and motivate you to practice regularly.  

It’s time to dismiss the notion that homework feels like work. It can be a fun way to track how you are doing and see your improvement over time. The more you do it, the less it will feel like work, and hopefully, you will feel more confident and in control!

    I wholeheartedly agree that homework helps with Constant Therapy online lessons! I have been learning the various aphasia programs for over a year and my progress results are much better. On average I would do 1-2 hours 5-6 days a week. Now I do about 1/2-1 hour about 3-4 days a week as my skill sets are easier. I appreciate the online Constant Therapy session when I first learned it at Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford, CT and found it to be the most useful thing for me.
