AUDIO UNABRIDGED VERSION

Reading by Andrea Cagan
Producers — One Productions
Music — Kristopher Stone

I developed a reading program that allowed my husband, Norm to get all the way through his favorite books with little frustration. There are more details about this program in my book, Brainstorming-Life After Acquired Brain Injury, chapter 16. One part of this program is using unabridged books on CD’s.

When I wrote my book I realized that many of my brain injury survivor friends would not be able to read it, so I recorded the book on 5 CD’s. There are three distinct features on these CD’s.

  • Each chapter is on its’ own track. So if the reader gets lost it is easier to go back to the beginning of the chapter, not the beginning of the book.
  • The second feature is music, by Kristopher Stone. You will hear music at the beginning and end of each CD. This tells the reader that the CD is about to begin and when it is about to end, warning the reader they should prepare to change to the next CD.
  • The third feature is the CD’s are unabridged so the reader can follow along hearing the story as well as reading from the book. This helped my husband with tracking, not skipping lines or words, replacing with wrong words, all of which impacted his comprehension.

Book, on 5-disc’s, unabridged is available at Dora@brainstormingbook.com
