Abstract

Roughly 20 per cent of all students in higher education have sustained clinically significant head injuries during childhood or adolescence. Although these injuries typically do not seem to lead to any long-term intellectual deficits, little is known about their possible impact upon the students' academic attainment. Nevertheless, many head-injured students report a wide range of cognitive and emotional symptoms. Helping students to deal with this distress is a major challenge for academic, administrative and support staff in higher education.
