Hi Nic and all,
   Is your student a veteran or an individual who may be suffering with PTSD? We've experienced 2 of our student veterans who are having really difficult times with this epidemic. 
   I contacted our university's Military/Veteran Student Services and organization. They were AWESOME! They recognized what I described to them, much like what you describe. They "guessed" (I did not disclose) who one of the student vets is. They told me, "Don't worry. We've got her." I almost cried. They also suggested that the students post to the organization's Facebook page and they would be sure that support would flood in. I trust them, they know what the students are going through. 
   Stress can be manifested as physiological and cognitive impairment. Support from a mental health professional may be helpful too.

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
