Challenges and Supports during the Transition from High School to College for Students with Traumatic Brain Injuries
Kramer, Michaela M.; Davies, Susan C.
Contemporary School Psychology, v20 n4 p370-382 Dec 2016
Students who have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may experience a number of consequences, all of which can impede the transition from high school to postsecondary educational settings. This study, which relied on interviews with students who had sustained TBIs and who had persistent problems related to their traumas, helped gain an understanding of their postsecondary transition experiences. Students' parents were also interviewed to provide a point of comparison. The reports of these students--all of whom were enrolled in college at the time of the study--revealed significant challenges with attention and focus, fatigue, short-term memory, and social situations. Comments from the parents offered corroboration. This report concludes with suggestions for school-based practice to promote strategies and services supporting this population of students in their transition to postsecondary educational settings.
