Learning problems and the traumatized brain

You were the top of your class, doing great in your field and generally an intelligent individual. You still are. The problem is that you just can't think the way you used to, and learning is harder than ever, thanks to a traumatic brain injury.

Depending on the kind of brain injury you've suffered, you could struggle to make new memories, have problems recalling memories or develop other learning disabilities. People who suffer traumatic brain injuries could have trouble understanding words, paying attention, thinking abstractly, behaving, talking, seeing or hearing, or reasoning. Some struggle with walking or physical activities because of the damage the brain injury caused. Some people can relearn to walk, read or perform other activities, while others struggle to regain those abilities.

How common are traumatic brain injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries happen fairly often, affecting around 1.7 million people yearly. These injuries result not only in mental handicaps but in physical disabilities in some cases.

How can traumatic brain injuries affect your ability to learn?

Some TBIs affect your ability to think clearly, which hurts your ability to learn. Your short-term memory could become damaged, or you could have trouble with long-term recall. You may think more slowly than before the injury, which could make it harder to communicate with others.

TBIs can also lead to behavioral, social and emotional problems, which could make it harder for you to go to school or work with others. As a result, some people struggle to maintain a job or the relationships they had before suffering a TBI.

Fortunately, there is help available for people with TBIs. With therapy and other treatments, it may be possible to regain at least some of the abilities you lost as a result of your accident and injury.
