This fact sheet offers general information about traumatic brain injury. Information includes a definition, incidence, individual characteristics, and educational implications. The fact sheet notes that the designation of traumatic brain injury as a separate category of disability signals that schools should provide children and youth with access to and funding for neuropsychological, speech and language, educational, and other evaluations necessary to provide the information needed for the development of an appropriate individualized education program. The fact sheet emphasizes the need for careful planning for school re-entry and offers suggestions for educators to work constructively with students with traumatic brain injury. A list of seven print resources and three organizations concludes the fact sheet. (JDD)
