Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The High Desert Education Service District offers concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) resources for educators working to help students get the academic and emotional support they need along their path to recovery. We work with health professionals and educators work together to identify, assess and serve students with concussion or TBI from birth to 21 years of age.
- The Center for Orthopedic and Neurological Care & Research, including a team of highly experienced brain injury medical experts, to help support your student.
- Center on Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT), an organization focused on helping educators and other professionals improve outcomes for people with brain injury.
While students with a concussion or TBI often share common characteristics, each has unique needs requiring individual planning and intervention strategies to support their educational and emotional success.
The High Desert Education Service District partners with local school districts, the University of Oregon and the Oregon Department of Education to identify students birth to 21 with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) within our Region, and provide them with support and services to improve their education and overall quality of life.
