Hello-  I have found that when working with such students, strategies for students with ADD/ADHD work well (big picture methods such as concept maps, concentration strategies, organizational strategies).  I am not a brain scientist but I think there are some executive functioning issues that show up in various impairments, including brain injuries.  Good luck,

Laura

Subject: Strategies for dealing cognitive impairment

Hi all,
I hope this message finds you and yours safe and healthy.

I’m wondering you could share with me resources on how to manage what a student described to me as “cognitive impairment,” “really bad brain fog”.
The student has not disclosed more, so I don’t know more than this other than it’s a fairly long-standing condition that has, periodically, other significant physiological symptoms.

If anyone knows of particularly good resources for dealing with concussions (not accommodations by instructors, rather strategies for students) or post-concussion syndrome, that might be a start, so please let me know.

Take care all,
Nic
