Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is a significant public health problem in the United States. A brain injury, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, disrupts the normal function of the brain.
After a TBI, children can experience changes in their health, thinking, and behavior that affect learning, self-regulation, and social participation—all of which are important to being successful in school and life!
Most children recover well physically but they can experience changes in behavior and cognition that are not recognized immediately. Research indicates that educators often are unfamiliar with the challenges students with TBI experience.
The In the Classroom (ITC) Course provides helpful information, practical strategies and resources for educators working with students with brain injury.
Classroom teachers, special educators, school psychologists, counselors, therapists, and administrators will all benefit from taking the ITC Course.
Access to the full course, which includes: Evidence-based instructional strategies, spread across 9 modules and 21 lessons, with professionally produced instructional videos and supplemental resources. The price of the ITC Course also includes Professional Develop Units (PDUs).
Each unit you complete is worth 15 minutes of PDUs. Completion of the entire ITC course entitles you to 10 hours of PDUs.
