Can You Spot the Difference? Puzzles in Cognitive Therapy

canyouspotthedifference

These Life Picture Puzzles are fun! Of course, there are some iPad apps these days that target the same skill but for some patients I prefer to stick with actual hand-held materials.

For infection control, consider removing the binding of the magazine and slipping each sheet into a page protector – a 1/2 inch 3-ring binder would keep it all together nicely.  Or, if you have access to a color copy machine then you could copy pages as well.

These magazines are cheap on Amazon (I purchased 3 used for $ 0.10 each!) and there are a wide range to chose from.  I’ve listed a few below.
