TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not always visible, but can be very complex.  Depending on the location and extent of the injury, individuals can be affected with physical, social, cognitive and vocational changes – either for a short time or permanently. Students with TBI often exhibit one or more of the following symptoms:

  • short-term memory problems
  • serious attention deficits
  • auditory dysfunction
  • cognitive deficits
  • behavior problems
  • problems of judgment
  • serious anxiety attacks.
