    Characteristics of Students with TBI
    InstructionalSevere recent memory disorder with poor carry over of new learning.
    Later onset.
    Sudden onset.
    External event caused onset.
    Neurological impairment is identifiable from “hard” signs as well as “soft” signs.
    Marked contrast of pre-onset and post-onset capabilities, both in one’s self view and in the perception of others.
    Some old skills and knowledge remain, but there are peaks and valleys of performance.
    Physical disability likely to involve paresis (weakness) or spasticity (over-tension).
    Degree and number of deficits range from mild to severe, but often combine to produce severe disability.

    Teaching
    Strategies for Students with Brain Injury
    A teacher who works with a child with TBI they should know about the effects of the student before working with them. In doing this it helps the teacher to have a good relationship with the student. Teacher should challenge the student and give hones proactive feedback to the student to help them be prepare for success and increase expectations. Children with brain injuries tend to have a hard time paying attention in the classroom. Children often have a harder time learning new skills because the damage happens to a brain that is still growing and developing. Sometimes you will find that a student with TBI may not complete their assignment and they are easily to be distracted. The child may not remember questions that were asked by the teacher.
    Strategies for improving attention and concentration for the classroom can include:
    Reduce distractions in the student’s work area
    Divide work into smaller sections
    Ask the student to summarize information orally that has just been presented
    Use cue words to alert the student to pay attention
    Establish a nonverbal cueing system to remind the student to pay attention
    Things to do to help improve a child memory skills are:
    Frequently repeat information and summarize it
    Have the student carry an assignment sheet to each class and check that it is correctly filled out
    Teach the student to use devices such as post-it-notes, calendars and assignment books as self-reminders
    Teach the student to categorize or chunk information to aid retention
    Demonstrate techniques such as mental rehearsal and use of special words or examples as reminders
    Link new information to the student’s relevant prior knowledge
    Provide experiential presentations of instructional materials
    TBI different than other disabilities
    The biggest difference is that TBI is an injury to the brain. This injury affects the child physically abilities, cognitive functioning, and communication. Another difference
    in teaching a child with TBI their knowledge can be scattered , leaving the child with wide gaps in his or her learning. A child with TBI also have to have their assessments done frequently.

    Click on 'Edit This Page'
    You can then start typing directly onto the page.
    If you want to format your text in any way, you will need to highlight the text you want to change and then use the buttons on the toolbar.

    Inserting Files and Images
    {Insert_pic.png}
    When you click on the Images and Files button, a window will pop up showing pictures and files that have already been uploaded to the wiki. At the bottom of this window is an area to upload new files and images.
    Click on 'Browse' to locate a file or image on you computer and then click on 'Upload'. When the file or image appears in the top part of the window, double click on it to add it to the wiki page.
    You will see another box saying 'Insert External Image by URL.' I use this option all the time. All images that are posted on the internet have a unique internet address (URL). If you are using Firefox and right click on an image from the internet, you can choose 'Save Image Location'. This copies the URL of that image. You can then paste the URL into the bottom box and click 'Load'. When the picture appears, double click on it to add it to the wiki page. If you are not using Firefox, click on an internet image to open it on a page by itself. The URL for that image is normally the address in the browser address window. Copy this address and paste it into the bottom box and double click on it when it appears. The beauty of this option is that the image is hosted elsewhere on the net and doesn't use up any of your wiki space allowance. The downside is that if you have a lot of these hosted pictures, you page can take a long time to load as it looks to all the sites where the pictures are stored and if the picture is deleted on the site where you 'borrowed' it from, it deletes on your wiki page as well.
    Embedding Media
    {Media.png}
    Use this button if you want a video, slideshow, podcast or any other widget (object that can be embedded on your page) on your page. You will first need to copy the html code from the site where your content is hosted (normally this is very easy to find and the pages in this wiki give you information on how to do this).

    Prevalence Of Traumatic Brain Injury
    Traumatic Brain Injury is silent epidemic. It is most common cause of death and disability in children. TBI is a serious public health in the United States and also it is contribute to many deaths. Today 1/2 or 1% of school aged chilren are dignosed with TBI. Only 3% adults are dignosed with TBI. Today you will not find that all students are served under the TBI disability category they may be label as ED or LD. Today many programs and researchers are working together to help people to be more recognizable and also be able to respond and recover if TBI occurs.
