Categorization for Adult TBI or Dementia Clients Here is an easy functional task that targets categorization recently used with a TBI client. Bring in bags of empty items from a grocery store and have client help put away the groceries based on whether they go in the kitchen (more specifically pantry or refrigerator) or the bathroom cabinet. Obviously this task can be repeated with many types of household items and the categories can be as broad or specific as needed.

"Key Turner for an easier experience when opening a door" This would be a great adaptation because who doesn't carry keys? This is a cheap and effective way to adapt something as little as a key for an every day tool. This adaptation makes it very easy to turn the key using your whole hand/ arm.
The adapted key turner allows individuals who with limited pinch and grasp ability to control key turn with two fingers and wrist motion.
Key Turner for an easier experience when opening a door. This is awesome for those who may not have the fine motor skills to hold the key itself.
