Head Injured Learners: Facilitating the Education/Social Adjustment of Traumatically Brain Injured Learners in Academic Settings.
Buethe, Diane; Buethe, Chris
Based upon 15 interviews, the paper discusses specific educational and social problems as perceived by nine brain injured learners (14-24 years old), their teachers, families, and peers. Interview excerpts illustrate executive functions of self-awareness, self-evaluation, and self-monitoring; the effects on families; and student difficulties in quantitative subject areas. Recurrent themes are noted, including feelings of disorientation, debilitating effects of negative teacher attitudes, and the existence of innovative problem solving approaches on the part of the brain injured students.
