Supporting Students with Brain Injury:

Problems seen in children subsequent to brain injury may include deficits in attention and concentration, memory, organizational skills, executive functioning, changes in behavior, social skills and emotional control. These can present significant challenges for school personnel.

The goals of the training are to:

  • Provide an overview of brain injury in all children, not just student athletes
  • Assist school staff in recognizing the signs & symptoms of brain injury
  • Help school staff respond appropriately & assist with the student's recovery process using a team approach (The REAP Protocol)
  • Identify teaching strategies/classroom accommodations that can assist with the student's recovery
  • Identify FREE resources available to children, their families and school personnel, including the statewide FACTS program

This training is conducted by Margo B. Singer, CBIS, Brain Injury Association of NYS Training Coordinator - Approved for Social Work CEUs. Certificates provided by the trainer. A minimum of 20 is required.
