College and university students with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are a diverse group. First, there are students who are injured while attending college or university. There is a relatively high incidence of TBI among college-age individuals, and the effects of injury on academic performance are gaining recognition. This is particularly true in regard to mild TBI (mTBI), the prevalence of which has been estimated at between 6 and 39% in post-secondary samples (Laforce & Martin-MacLeod, 2001; Marschark, Richtsmeier, Richardson, Crovitz, & Henry, 2000). There also is growing recognition of the cumulative effects of repeated mild injuries on cognitive function in college athletes (Collins et al., 1999).
