Educational Directions for Students with Traumatic Brain Injury.
Center for Innovations in Special Education, Columbia, MO.
This manual, developed to assist Missouri school personnel in the provision of educational opportunities for students with traumatic brain injury (TBI), answers commonly asked questions about the educational needs of these students, and gives practical applications of educational practices and programming. Three case studies are introduced to help explain the educational applications. The three children (ages 2-15) profiled are representative of the diversity of students who experience a brain injury. Their stories describe how they, along with their families, teamed with staff from their rehabilitation centers and schools to facilitate their return to school. These stories not only personalize students with TBI, but also the educational practices and programming often necessary to support reintegration and educational success. The manual focuses on several key areas in the context of the three case studies: (1) developing a school re-entry plan; (2) implementing learning, memory, and behavioral strategies; (3) developing an Individualized Education Program; (4) conducting a functional behavioral assessment; and (5) developing a behavioral intervention plan. Appendices include lists of Missouri resource agencies, resource materials, community prevention programs, and Internet resources. (Each case study contains references.) (CR)
