TBI in Children and Adolescents: Recognizing and Treating Cognitive-Communicative Behaviors That Affect Learning
Children with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families face serious challenges that stem from cognitive-communicative problems affecting classroom learning, behavior, and community participation. Learn how to adapt the curriculum, based on recognition of underlying processes that lead to certain behaviors, in order to maximize the performance of children with TBI aged 5–18 with this web workshop.
This web workshop includes recorded lectures, interactive exercises, video clips, additional resources, and an exam.
You will be able to:
- describe prevalence, incidence, and developmental challenges for learning in children with TBI
- explain how underlying processes of cognitive-communication impact a child’s learning and behavior
- outline procedures to assess and treat children transitioning to school and community
- suggest methods for analyzing the communication environment and communication partners in the child’s life
- create functionally based outcomes that relate to treatment impairment, activity/participation, and context-specific levels
