Summary

Community colleges, four-year colleges, and other training programs have developed special services for head injury survivors. The need for these services is explained using statistics from the National Head Injury Foundation, and head injury is defined. The person with head injury may experience impairment in such functions as memory, cognitive/perceptual communication, speed of thinking, communication, spatial reasoning, conceptualization, executive functions, psychosocial behavior, motor ability, sensory ability, and physical ability. Programs available include: (1) rehabilitation programs with cognitive training and vocational components, and (2) postsecondary education or job training programs. Educational and program planning for head-injured students should take into account the need of all such students for structure, flexibility, reduced demands, supervision, and intervention. Guidelines are offered on setting up campus programs, and suggestions are made to assist head-injured survivors in planning their educational programs. Also included is a list of individuals and organizations that can be contacted for advice on developing services to meet student needs. (JDD)
