What is parietal lobe rehabiliation?

  I have a friend whose daughter (now aged six) had an IVH at birth.  She has extensive parietal lobe damage, and both loses her way in familiar surroundings, and is unable to tell spatial orientations between letters.  What is parietal lobe training, can children benefit from this, and will it help her read?  Also, where do you find literature on the subject?

Dear Shari:
Parietal Lobe rehab is a process in which an individual is taught to compensate through different techniques for the damage that he/she has suffered in the parietal lobes. As you have mentioned parietal lobes are important in controlling spatial orientation, activities of daily living and functions pertaining to language and calculation and item recognition.
Not all individuals will benefit equally and it is difficult to say whether your friend will benefit and how much she will benefit. The best recommendation is that she should be evaluated by an expert pediatric neurologist. If your friend is near the Cleveland Area, she may wish to contact the office of Dr. David Rothner (head of pediatric neurology) for an opinion. He may be reached at (216) 444-2200. I am sure that he would be able to provide you with literature about this topic.
Good Luck!
