Summary

This paper examines issues in the postsecondary education of students with brain injuries. It defines the categories of brain injury and describes the impact on an individual's ability to learn and to live independently. Appropriate learning tools and strategies to help these students succeed in postsecondary education are discussed. The paper also offers specific suggestions to students, parents, instructors, academic advisors, therapists, and Disability Support Services administrators. Case studies of two specific students with brain injuries illustrate common pitfalls and obstacles encountered when adjusting to and developing beyond the effects of such injury. Individual sections address: types and causes of brain injury, effects of a brain injury, cognitive impairments, physical and sensory impairments, psychosocial impairments, impact on the learning process, financial impact, comparisons with other disability categories, and education and related services for students with brain injuries. A resource list of organizations, Web sites, and organizations completes the paper. (DB)
