This video was made for our TBI Voices project. We interviewed thirty real life survivors of brain injury. In these interviews we talked to the survivors about how they became brain injured and who they were before their brain injury. We also talk about their recovery and what deficits they have encountered because of their brain injury.
I asked Bill about accommodating Steven.
You have been through the difficult effort to learn at trade in an area that you had some interest in, auto mechanics. Do you see any strategies in terms of accommodations, teaching skills or memory aids that could make it easier for you to do that regardless of how long it took you to be able to get the car put together and not have parts left over?

This kind of filters over into every aspect of everything I do. I need a lot more detailed and specifically organized laid out steps that I should be able to follow than the average person. You can just tell somebody this, this, this and this, get it done. I need all that in-between stuff that they're supposed to just automatically know and be able to do on their own.

In a perfect world, you would have the perfect teacher to mentor you until you got it done yourself.
