Several days ago I published the article, Attending College, University and Graduate School after a Brain Injury. To offer the information to individuals who learn through watching and listening I am creating a video presentation of the article.
Below is a brief excerpt from Part 1 of the article
On Donna ODonnell Figurski radio program, “Another Fork in the Road – College After Brain Injury – Juliet Madsen & Karen Dickerson” aired on Brain Injury Radio on August 6, 2017 I shared these lessons.
My Process and Journey with Brain Injury, College, Universities and Graduate Schools
In my experience, my traumatic brain injury occurred when I was 10 years old, in 1967. In my experience, it took me 10 years with 4 different majors (2 universities and 1 college) to obtain my undergraduate degree. In my experience, it also took me 3 1/2 years and 2 different graduate schools to obtain my graduate degree.
After obtaining my master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling my mom told me that the results from the 2 EEG’s and a battery of neurological and psychological tests done in 1968 revealed that I was not expected to succeed beyond high school academically. My parents had decided not to share the news with me in 1968.
My Experience with Brain Injury and an Invisible Disability
I grew up with and attended college, universities and graduate schools with the impact of a traumatic brain injury and an invisible disability.
