This overview workshop will include basic information on acquired brain injuriies including types, incidence, prevalence, and leading causes. Based on understanding brain-behavior relationships, we will review signs and symptoms of brain injury and discuss impacts in the classroom. Focus will be on formal and informal assessments to identify assets/deficits due to injury and appropriate academic and behavioral interventions and strategies to support the student in the classroom and community. The adult education format will be lecture, dialogue, video, small/large group discussion and includes a case study of an injured adolescent with mTBI. All training materials will be provided.
