Assistance for Children With Brain Injury

A Web cast, "Behavior Assessment and Problem Solving Using Positive Behavior Supports for Students with Traumatic Brain Injury" will be presented by the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Technical Assistance Center at the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators (NASHIA).  This Web cast is funded by the Federal TBI Program.

When:  Thursday, April 27, 2006, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm EDT

This Web cast is intended for use as a training resource for teachers, special educators, school nurses, and other school personnel working with students with traumatic brain injury.

According to the program sponsors "through this Web cast participants will learn why it is important to correctly identify students with TBI and provide them with appropriate supports and services.  This discussion will inform participants how to identify problem behaviors and construct positive plans to deal with these behaviors.  Participants will also be able to identify possible triggers of
behavior problems for students following a TBI and develop positive interventions to proactively deal with behaviors that disrupt the learning atmosphere of the classroom.  The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
