Arroyos-Jurado, Elsa; Savage, Todd A.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v43 n4 p252-254 2008
As school-age children are at the highest risk for sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI), educational professionals working in school settings will encounter students dealing with the after-effects of a TBI. These effects can influence students' ability to navigate the behavioral, social, and academic demands of the classroom. This article outlines the reintegration of students with a TBI as well as general interventions and strategies of which teachers, administrators, school psychologists, and other professionals need to be aware when working with these individuals. Best practices suggest that interventions and teaching strategies be multifaceted.
