GOS and GOS-E Case 1
Our first case study involves a 19-year-old patient who is not working. She did not finish high school but was working on completing her high school exam. She drove a car and had many friends.
She was involved in a lot of social activities. She lived with a boyfriend for some time but recently returned to live with her family when the relationship ended.
She was completely independent and did not have any relevant pre-existing conditions.
She spends two days a week in an outpatient therapy center.
Her reading is at the level of an 8 year old. She can do some addition and subtraction.
She is living at home with her family. She will go out but clearly much less than before the accident and never alone.
She can do most of the normal daily activities like bathing, grooming, dressing and putting on make-up herself.
Although she feels she can be left alone for the day, her family members disagree.
They do not want to leave her for longer than a couple of hours at the most for fear she will become anxious or harm herself or forget to take her medication.
She cannot drive a car. And although she claims to be able to handle a taxi or bus, she is unable to write down her full address.
She does not complain about any remaining symptoms or about additional strain or discomfort.
Her family members say she is easily distracted and has great trouble concentrating.
