Sort by: A-Z | Z-A | Newest | Oldest

Sometimes after a traumatic brain injury, people can have cognitive problems as well as communication problems, which can impair their ability to live independently. They may not be able to organize their thoughts; they may have a hard time processing new information; or they may have trouble finding the "right" words -- words they need to express their thoughts and share their feelings. And early on after a traumatic brain injury, especially if the injury is more severe, the person may have trouble with more basic skills like swallowing, chewing, or forming basic word sounds.
