AHEAD Preconference #9: Tuesday, July 12, 2011

The number of individuals with post-concussive syndrome, mTBI (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury), and TBI (traumatic brain injury) in post-secondary institutions will continue to increase due to research that has redefined brain injury as a chronic on-going process. This session will address functional issues of individuals with brain trauma based on new research, the impact on learning, accommodations and available support.
