Developing Educational Accommodations and Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can significantly interfere with how children and adolescents function and develop cognitively, emotionally, and socially—essentially, how they make sense of and interact with the world around them. Children who experience such injury often return to school with notable cognitive, psychological and physical needs that can substantially impact academic functioning. However, clinical and educational research, as well as common sense, clearly supports the finding that early intervention after TBI is essential. Early intervention not only significantly improves medical outcomes but authentic opportunities for successful transitions to school reentry and ongoing, positive academic and clinical outcomes for children and adolescents across developmental domains. The focus of this training will be upon finding, developing, and using evidence-based accommodations and interventions in facilitating successful outcomes for children and adolescents with TBI in the context of pre-injury and post-injury functioning. Various references and samples in the clinical and research literature will be presented.
