i was at my cognitive therapy appointment today and my therapist and i were discussing and working on my increased difficulty doing things in sequence, i.e. washing dishes, making the bed, etc.  then, she thought, "wait a minute....you can find ANYTHING on youtube!", so we went to youtube and typed in "how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich" and lo and behold, the visual instructions were there!

 

we then typed in some other areas that i have difficulty with, i.e. making the bed, taking a shower.  and visual step-by-step instructions were brought up.  the good thing also was that i can stop at any time and reverse.  can be done on computer or ipad. 

 

hope this could be helpful to others, also.

This is a great idea, Nomemo!  You're very fortunate to have a therapist who is willing to work WITH you in finding answers for your difficulties, and not tell you there's nothing wrong with you, like my psychologist did.

Nomemo, what a great idea. I've used youtube for many "how to things" I've never done before. Now your idea is a great reminder to use youtube for things I forget how to do. I'm adding it to my coping skills list.

God Bless, Paul
