The Brain That Changes Itself

Norman Doidge MD

A sentinel piece on neuroplasticity (i.e. how the brain changes), in 2007 this book brought the concept that the brain can heal to the public consciousness. This single book changed my own daughter’s health trajectory. After reading it I learned of the many different options to help heal a damaged brain (my daughter has Cerebral Palsy) and started to research each of these therapies. This led us eventually to take my daughter to Toronto in 2019 to be among the first in North America to use this therapy to treat a child with CP. It has radically changed her functional trajectory and changed our family forever. A great resource for anyone who either has any type of brain damage or has a loved one with a brain injury.
