Response to Intervention: The Functional Assessment of Children Returning to School with Traumatic Brain Injury
Dykeman, Bruce F.
Education, v130 n2 p295-300 Win 2009
Children with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) face many demands when completing their rehabilitation and returning to school. Although the prognosis can be favorable for many children, the course of recovery poses unique challenges for children and staff alike. To this end, a functional assessment of TBI children within a Response-to-Intervention (RTI) model provides a comprehensive strategy of easing transition to the school and charting progress throughout the course of recovery. Literature is reviewed and applicability to the RTI model is discussed.
