Guide to Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Accommodations for Students with Head Injuries

Students who have experienced trauma to the central nervous system as the result of a head injury may present a combination of problems associated with other disabilities.

  • Modify time expectations for both testing and completion of course requirements as needed. Tests may also need to be broken into smaller units.
  • Expect regressed social behavior in some students.
  • Allow the use of a note taker or audio recorder.
  • Allow the use of computers, and other aids such as spell checkers and calculators. 

Please refer such students to the Office of Disability Services in S207 (857-7286).
