Traumatic Brain Injury: Training Manual for School Personnel.
Clark, Elaine, Ed.; Hostetter, Cheryl, Ed.
Designed for inservice and preservice training, this manual provides information about the ways a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect a student's functioning and the ways an educator can intervene to improve the student's chances of academic and social success. The first part of the manual is a trainer's manual and the second part is a participant's packet. Each of the two parts is further divided into sections pertaining to the onset of TBI, the re-entry process, the team approach, and the transition process. The trainer's manual is comprised of a set of detailed lecture materials which include specific instructions for presenting the information to a group of participants. Resource and glossary sections are also included for further references. The participant's packet includes reproducible masters of supplemental materials that pertain to assessment and management. Master copies of overhead transparencies to accompany the lecture presentation are also provided in the participant's packet. The manual has been used extensively in statewide inservice training in Utah and in graduate and undergraduate training at the University of Utah. The materials can be covered in 1-day training workshops, but more easily in a day and a half or a 2-day session. (Contains 53 references.) (CR)
