Disabilities

Keeping students with brain injuries in college

People with traumatic brain injuries struggle with the effects of memory loss, depression, and cognitive challenges if they don’t have access to assistive technologies and rehabilitation services.

JBS’s Disability Services Center and its partners have launched Project Career. Funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research to address the needs of civilians and service members who have a traumatic brain injury, the 5-year project bridges the gap between education and employment.

Students receive iPads that provide cognitive, academic, and vocational support without drawing attention to their disability. Supports include apps that accommodate memory, attention, and communication challenges, as well as in-person and virtual communication with career mentors.

The Disability Services Center is evaluating Project Career’s effectiveness in giving people with traumatic brain injuries the help they need for academic and career success—because everyone deserves the chance to lead a full, productive life.
