Traumatic Brain Injury (updated April 2000)

What information is available on teaching students with traumatic brain injuries (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by the head being hit by something or shaken violently. This injury can change how the person acts, moves, and thinks. A traumatic brain injury can also change how a student learns and acts in school.

The term TBI is used for head injuries that can cause changes in one or more areas, such as: thinking and reasoning, understanding words, remembering things, paying attention, solving problems, thinking abstractly, talking, behaving, walking and other physical activities, seeing and/or hearing, and learning.

When children with TBI return to school, their educational and emotional needs are often very different than before the injury. Their disability has happened suddenly and traumatically. They can often remember how they were before the brain injury. This can bring on many emotional and social changes. The child's family, friends, and teachers also recall what the child was like before the injury. These other people in the child's life may have trouble changing or adjusting their expectations of the child. The following tips may assist teachers in working with these students:

  • Find out as much as you can about the child's injury and his or her present needs. Find out more about TBI.
  • Give the student more time to finish schoolwork and tests.
  • Give directions one step at a time. For tasks with many steps, it helps to give the student written directions.
  • Show the student how to perform new tasks. Give examples to go with new ideas and concepts.
  • Have consistent routines. This helps the student know what to expect. If the routine is going to change, let the student know ahead of time.
  • Check to make sure that the student has actually learned the new skill. Give the student lots of opportunities to practice the new skill.
  • Show the student how to use an assignment book and a daily schedule. This helps the student get organized.
  • Realize that the student may get tired quickly. Let the student rest as needed.
  • Reduce distractions.
  • Keep in touch with the student's parents. Share information about how the student is doing at home and at school.
  • Be flexible about expectations. Be patient. Maximize the student's chances for success.

This monograph attempts to provide an overview of current educational issues that affect brain-injured students with special emphasis on the assessment process. An introduction notes recognition of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its definition under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1990 as well as the increasing numbers of such students in the schools (as their survival rate increases). Typical causes and consequences of TBI at different age levels as well as categories of severity are considered in the next section. A typical recovery sequence following TBI is then discussed as are differences between TBI students and other students with disabilities. The following section stresses the importance of the school's role and educational interventions in helping such children gain reassurance that achievement is again possible. The major section on assessment addresses the following aspects: early intervention/coordination, nature of the assessment, the neuropsychological evaluation, neuropsychological assessment instruments, test observations, informal assessments/observations, assessment timing, other factors relating to assessment, and financial responsibilities. The final two sections look at implications for the recovering student and implications for school responses to recovering students.

This final report describes the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Home/School Support project, an Oregon project which attempted to decrease stress in parents caring for school-aged children with TBI and to provide support to schools serving students with TBI. During its 3 years of development, the project involved over 50 families of children, ages 5-21, who had experienced a severe traumatic brain injury. In addition, nearly 200 educators throughout Oregon received inservice training and technical assistance. The multi-faceted model on which the project was based included both school-centered and child-centered goals focusing on issues in instructional planning and community participation. The model provided for coordinated family services from the Oregon Head Injury Foundation, a community psychology clinic, a parent-run respite care organization, and a public school-based information and referral program. Results of the project indicated that a combination of coordinated school/home efforts, respite care, case management, and parent training and counseling were of significant assistance to the parents of children with TBI. This report has sections on the project's goals and objectives, conceptual framework, the model and its participants, logistical problems and modifications, findings, impact, and sources of further information. Extensive appendices include articles and book chapters: "A Comparison of Two Psychosocial Interventions for Parents of Children with Acquired Brain Injury: An Exploratory Study" (George H. S. Singer and others); "Comprehensive Family Support for Behavioral Change in Children with Traumatic Brain Injury" (Joseph M. Lucyshyn and others); "Helping Parents Negotiate the School System" (Ann Glang and others); "Tailoring Direct Instruction Techniques for Use with Elementary Students with Brain Injury" (Ann Glang and others); "Training an Interdisciplinary Team in Communication and Decision-Making Skills" (Elizabeth Cooley); "Using Direct Instruction with Brain Injured Students" (Ann Glang and others); and "'You Can't Imagine Unless You've Been There Yourself': A Report on the Concerns of Parents and Children with Acquired Brain Injury" (George H.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a federally recognized disabling condition which involves behavioral and academic difficulties. Dysfunction varies with the type and location of injury and with the age of the child. School personnel traditionally have had little exposure to TBI, and there is great potential for problems to occur due to lack of knowledge of legal requirements, miscommunication, and territoriality issues. Assessment procedures, including tests of intelligence, academic achievement, and social/emotional functioning, are conducted by a multidisciplinary team to determine the special services that may be needed. Determination of appropriate placement should be dependent upon individual characteristics of the child. Individualized Education Program objectives should be developed initially for achievement over short periods of time, to best chart recovery of function and modify the program to suit the child's needs. Parental input should be actively sought and used when constructing objectives. Modifications in teaching style and methods, testing, behavior management techniques, length of lessons and homework assignments, and student expectations may be necessary. Suggestions are offered to help schools adjust to the TBI child, and a table lists barriers to serving children with TBI.

Intended for use by the classroom teacher, this guide presents teaching suggestions as well as suggested resources for teaching children with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Emphasis is placed on working with the injured family and the importance of planning for transition and re-entry into the classroom through a continuum of settings. Teachers are encouraged to become informed about TBI because of their direct service role, the high incidence of TBI, and the recognition of TBI in public law. Common problems associated with TBI are identified and include: impaired memory, attentional deficits, visual field losses, confusion and hesitancy in word finding, and behavioral problems. Also discussed are identification of the TBI child, assessment (by a neuropsychologist and others), teaching methods which capitalize on the child's strengths, and the educational problem of deciding whether to retrain, remediate, or compensate. Descriptions are given of successful teaching strategies which may involve retraining or developing thinking processes, developing compensatory skills, coaching the thinking process, and applying behavioral principles and strategies. Three references and 13 suggested resources are included. Appendices provide information summaries, a glossary, and teaching models.

This resource guide of annotated references on traumatic brain injury (TBI) was created to help educators locate information from such disciplines as neurology, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, and pediatric medicine. Twenty-four resources published from 1990 to 1994 are listed, with annotations. The resources include research reports/reviews, edited books, conference presentations, textbooks, and journal articles. A conclusion points out that the integration of the medical, rehabilitation, and educational perspectives is necessary for the TBI student to function at the highest level possible. The conclusion encourages special educators to use single case research designs to contribute to knowledge of TBI students in the school setting. Appendices list characteristics of TBI student which affect school functioning, Rancho Los Amigos levels of cognitive functioning, names and addresses of 10 resource organizations, and data about the literature search that was conducted to identify the 24 resources.

This guide addresses issues concerned with the reintegration of students with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) into the classroom. It first provides a definition of TBI and identifies characteristics of students with TBI. The guide then discusses cognitive consequences of TBI, with emphasis on deficits of executive function, attention, and memory. Seven guidelines for classroom management of students with executive function deficits follow. A common timetable for regaining attentional skills is offered and goes from "ability to focus attention at all" through "ability to sustain attention" and finally "ability to divide attention." The variety of disturbances of memory processes is discussed as is the relationship between metamemory and working memory. One section provides specific recommendations for school re-entry such as establishment of a school team and avoidance of certain words and phrases in describing the TBI child. The role of the school psychologist in assessment of TBI children is addressed, and specific tests and subtests are recommended. Guidelines are offered for managing behavior problems (such as agitated behavior and inappropriate sexual behavior), cognitive disturbances, and problems of attention and control. The final section considers the use of compensatory systems and accommodative techniques to manage organizational and memory deficits.
