may sound silly and I did not like doing it, but to help with my fine motor skills I did jg saw puzzles, it takes a lot of eye to hand co ordination


try him with brain training games. theres a website with 3 days free trial called lumosity.com

and u can still play some games after the free trial. its good to help memory. I found it about a week ago and i still play the free games, it helped me.

hope this helps...


See if you can enroll him for Conductive Education, they have seperate Stroke Groups, I go to the local one in Birmingham each week, following my Stroke!



I'd be lost without my Nintendo DS!

I don't do level trendy games just brain training and puzzles. Would recommend the xl

As the slightly larger screen is better for my eyes!

Take care. Linda


I use a mobile device (iPad) - it is my silent friend. It gives me a window to the world outside and allows me to take part in conversations in my own time, at my own pace, research brain stuff, watch tv, etc.... I also used Lumosity (downloaded the app) has great memory games which the kids played along with me. The iPad really helped me practice writing again, stimulating that part of the brain that you need in order to write. I wouldn't be without it!
