Traumatic Brain Injury. AZ-TAS Themes & Issues: A Series of Topical Papers on Special Education.
Berecin, Maria; And Others
This guide to educational services for individuals with traumatic brain injury emphasizes that there is no such thing as a typical brain injury and that each child's recovery is unique. It stresses the schools' responsibility to serve these children's educational, psychological, emotional, communicative, and/or health needs, and urges public agencies to work collaboratively to provide appropriate services. Information about traumatic brain injury is provided in a question and answer format, including: diagnostic procedures, major causes, brain conditions qualifying and not qualifying under the federal definition of traumatic brain injury, prevalence in Arizona, prognosis, rehabilitation techniques, eligibility for special education services, and classroom interventions. A list of 21 community-based resources in Arizona concludes the guide. Contains 17 references. (JDD)
