Acquired Brain InjuriesIt is estimated that 50,000 people per year suffer a head injury severe enough to keep them from returning to their pre-injury level of functioning. College-age students are in a high-risk age group for this type of injury; two-thirds of all head injury cases occur among persons aged 15-24. Some students with Acquired Brain Injuries have mobility problems that require accommodations. Some who have no mobility problems may be reluctant to reveal their disability to you. Cognitive deficits may include difficulties with concentration, memory, problem solving, and abstract reasoning.
