Resources for Low Vision, Stroke Recovery, and TBIs

We wanted to follow up on here on last week’s article about help for low vision, stroke recovery and traumatic brain injury. It only makes sense to provide additional resources from the internet and organizations that can provide additional support to persons with these challenges AND their caregivers as well.

Please find the following resources, many of which are FREE. We hope they will help you, your child, or someone for whom you care:

2. Information on rehabilitation, low vision aids, coping strategies, and other resources are provided here. http://www.lowvision.org/

3. A rich collection of resources on the World Wide Web is available to those who wish to know more about visual impairments and about resources and accommodations for students with visual impairments.

  1. In 1980 i learned from a Chinese Master of Tia Chi how to prevent stroke and remove any potential stroke. This year it was confirmed by another Chinese Master friend
    If your tongue is not straight you have a future potential stroke.
    To remove and prevent any future stroke place your hands over your ears, put your index fingers on top of your middle fingers and flick your index finger onto your neck. There is no limitations or side effects. This stimulates energy and matter flow in your arteries.
    I have followed this and other practises for 30yrs and have had no medication or serious sickness
    In China there is a sentence "if you want to know if a pear is sweet, taste it.
    Enjoy : )
