Thank you for the valuable info that you provide here, Adam. I am a veteran at East Carolina University, and I think a lot of vets here could benefit from your wisdom. There aren't a lot of comments on your video blogs on the Brainline you find that you are reaching more people, and getting more feedback via the site's Facebook page?
What I have found with some professors, is that they do not honor the ADA adjustments that I am allowed, they "look at me and see no visible disability" so therefore assume I am fine. This issue has led to lower grades because of that fact. When I do bring it up to the attention of the administration, it is ignored. I'm so tired of fighting. I acquiried a brain injury at the age of 42. Frustrating.
