Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury is an injury to the brain caused by an outside force (e.g., fall hitting the head, automobile accident, etc.).
The effects and impairments seen following a traumatic brain injury depend upon which area(s) of the brain was injured during the accident. Most often, disruption or change in brain function can be seen in the following domains:
- Attention skills
- Judgment and problem solving skills
- Inferencing skills
- Memory and/or short-term recall
- Language (comprehension or production) – language impairment is called Aphasia
- Speech clarity
