ONE-DAY COURSE : 8 NOVEMBER, 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Children with brain injury are not simply “little adults” with brain injury. Their clinical presentation, and the evidence-based methods to help them, are inextricably intertwined with brain development, and the need to understand how to help the educational system support them in their development and transition to adult life. This course is designed for all brain injury rehabilitation professionals and school professionals working with children age 0-25 who have acquired brain injury. Training will include evidence-based interventions for cognitive rehabilitation needed by clinicians/educators in order to provide optimum support for children, adolescents, and young adults who have sustained either traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury.
