Guidelines are offered for creating prevention and awareness programs and for implementing staff development. A section on service options discusses identification, re-entry into regular education, special education evaluation, and an Individualized Education Program for students diagnosed with TBI. Procedures for providing student transportation are outlined. Sample forms are offered, such as a re-entry preplanning worksheet, medication procedures, training requirements of staff, and suggestions for classroom accommodations. A resources list provides information on Utah and national agencies and support groups, books and articles, and videos. A glossary and list of acronyms are also presented. Contains six references.
