What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when an outside force traumatically injures the brain. It can be caused by falls, vehicle accidents, violence or loss of consciousness. TBI is especially common among children and young adults, but is often under-identified and can make it difficult for students to be successful in school and social settings.
What Are Some of the Indicators of TBI?
TBI can affect a student’s ability to learn and perform in cognitive, behavioral, academic and social realms. Symptoms can be unpredictable, confusing and may include:
- Profound emotional changes
- Changes in judgment
- Communication difficulties
