The ability to plan and carry out tasks is complex and is often affected by brain injury, particularly where damage to the frontal lobes has occurred.
It is an example of 'executive dysfunction', where a range of seemingly routine activities are adversely affected by brain injury, often having a severe impact on day-to-day life.
We’ve put together 9 tips to help people who have problems with planning:
If you experience difficulty with your planning skills after brain injury, it is important to seek professional advice. Contact your doctor to ask about a referral to a specialist such as a neuropsychologist, neurologist or occupational therapist.
You can also contact our helpline to discuss these issues in more detail. They can provide you with further information on living with a brain injury and give details of your local Headway group or branch.
