Webinar Offers Advice for College Bound Vets with TBI

We know many of you are caring for a spouse who was severely injured in Iraq or Afghanistan.

And the struggle has been long, and hard.

For those who suffer from traumatic brain injury, returning to everyday life may have at first, seemed impossible.

As they improve and progress, the Department of Defense has offered a series of classes for caretakers and family members to help these veterans in their recovery.

This week, they are hosting an event that specifically addresses helping your veteran take the next step toward regaining their everyday life.

On Thursday, Aug. 13 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. EST, the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury will talk about helping your veteran go to college.

Karen Hux, Ph.D., a professor in the department of special education and communication disorders at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will discuss the challenges these students face and ways to overcome them.

This includes discussing:

  • Support strategies and accommodations to make note-taking easier
  • Ways to maximize reading comprehension
  • How to balance educational, social and daily living activities
