Stevens, Alice M.
This resource guide of annotated references on traumatic brain injury (TBI) was created to help educators locate information from such disciplines as neurology, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, and pediatric medicine. Twenty-four resources published from 1990 to 1994 are listed, with annotations. The resources include research reports/reviews, edited books, conference presentations, textbooks, and journal articles. A conclusion points out that the integration of the medical, rehabilitation, and educational perspectives is necessary for the TBI student to function at the highest level possible. The conclusion encourages special educators to use single case research designs to contribute to knowledge of TBI students in the school setting. Appendices list characteristics of TBI student which affect school functioning, Rancho Los Amigos levels of cognitive functioning, names and addresses of 10 resource organizations, and data about the literature search that was conducted to identify the 24 resources. Contains 12 references. (JDD)
