Traumatic Brain Injury: Effects on School Functioning and Intervention Strategies
Elaine Clark, Sondra Russman, Scott Orme
Abstract: Children and adolescents who sustain traumatic brain injuries are at risk for both acute and chronic problems. Although research indicates that the majority of brain injuries are mild and have minimal impact upon learning and development, in cases in which injuries are more severe children are often left with serious cognitive and behavioral impairments, some of which are permanent. This article is intended to provide information for educators about the range of problems that children and their families face following a brain injury. Suggestions for assessment and intervention practices are included with brief case examples.
