Disability-Specific Resources: Acquired Brain Injury

Effects from an acquired brain injury can be both physical and/or psychological including subtle cognitive and behavioral disturbances which can impact academic performance.  A student with an acquired brain injury may experience one or more of the following:

  • difficulties with memory
  • difficulties retaining or retrieving information
  • difficulty with communication in either the expressive or receptive modes
  • impaired motor function

Accommodations for students who have an acquired brain injury are often similar to those accommodations for students with learning disabilities.
