Traumatic Brain Injury
, an acquired injury to a brain by an external force. Low-incidence Level.
Determine a plan of assisted technologies and personalized accommodations the student may need with the help of a medical professional, school faculty, and parents according to the severity of the TBI. Plan should address the problems the student may encounter re-entering the classroom. Further, this team should meet multiple scheduled times to alter the program to the students needs as TBI patients often experience "rapid gains" where goals are quickly met in the first year of the students learning and need to be updated to the students progress.
Permit sunglasses and hat
Have a dark corner for the student to work in.
Warn before major drills, ex: fire drill, tornado drill.
Gradually re-introduce testing and test separately in a quiet environment.
Allow for scheduled rest breaks every hour for 10 to fifteen minutes.
One on one and small group instruction
Frustration and Coping Emotionally with New "Self'
Allow the student to have lunch outside of the cafeteria as this may be too great of a stressor but with his/her friends as well.
Speak with the friends of the student about the nature of the injury and what to expect before the students re-entry into the classroom.
