dc.description.abstractThis project was conducted to find out the impact of age parity and exercise on an individual diagnosed with an Acquired Brain Injury. I worked one-on-one with a 22-year-old male twice a week, encouraging an increase in physical activity through creative exercises and therapeutic game-playing. The overall goal was to assist and support this individual with maintaining physical, mental and emotional wellness in the face of so much loss at such a young age. By brainstorming and connecting with the on-site physical therapist, I was able to create an environment where the individual and I connected easily on age-related topics like music and television shows. The connection we were able to build by focusing on what we had in common definitely had an impact on his overall motivation and willingness to stick to the prescribed PT program. As the weeks progressed, so did his capacity to move; watching him push forward physically and battle his own frustration with his incapacity was life-changing for both of us. I couldn’t be more grateful for this experience.
