A Collaborative Model for Assessing the School‐Based Needs of Students with Moderate and Severe TBI
Wednesday, November 15, 12:45-4:00pm

  • Dr. Paul Jantz earned his Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of Northern Colorado. He is currently a full-time faculty member in the school psychology program at Texas State University where he teaches about brain anatomy, the biological basis of behavior, data-based decision-making, and ethics. Prior to beginning his career at the university level, Dr. Jantz was a practicing school psychologist in public schools for 15 years. Dr. Jantz’s research and professional interests include the role of neuroimaging in the school-based assessment of children with traumatic brain injury (TBI), increasing educators’ sense of self-efficacy as it relates to TBI, assessing the use of evidence-based academic, behavioral, and social-emotional interventions for children with TBI, and barriers that prevent individuals from seeking a medical evaluation following mild, moderate, and severe TBIs. Dr. Jantz has published a number of practitioner-focused articles and case studies on TBI in peer-reviewed journals and co-authored the book Working with TBI in Schools: Transition, Assessment, and Intervention. Dr. Jantz has presented skills-building workshops on TBI at the local, state, and national levels and acts in the capacity of an expert witness in legal cases involving children who have sustained a TBI.
