TBI Intervention 1 - Tabletop RPG Modification - Choose Your Own Adventure for Severe TBI-related impairments

Once the client is out of the coma, and rated at just Rancho Los Amigos Cognitive Levels II & III (able to open eyes in response to stimuli such as a spoken request or physical touch) (Burlingame, 2002), the RT can begin to implement various modifications of role-playing games as a recreation therapy intervention. At this stage, the RT could begin to implement the most rudimentary of RPGs, the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) form. As long as the client can make a binary/Boolean responses indicating yes or no, whether verbally, by number of eye blinks, hand squeeze, or other method, the client potentially qualifies for participation in this therapeutic intervention.
