Stronger After Stroke puts the power of recovery in the reader's hands by providing simple-to-follow instructions for reaching the highest possible level of healing. Basic concepts covered include repetition of task-specific movements, proper scheduling of practice, and setting goals and recognizing when they have been achieved. The second edition is completely revised throughout, incorporating feedback from readers, and the latest research data. A new chapter on recovery core concepts defines the stages of recovery and explains how these stages can structure efforts toward recovery. Also included is an FAQ section that contains 30 questions culled from the talks the author has given since the first edition.
