This session for BrainSTEPS Team Leaders continues to update their capacity to effectively motivate their BrainSTEPS team and serve students in Pennsylvania following an acquired brain injury. They will extend their learning of proper teaming techniques that will help facilitate their BrainSTEPS Teams. Teams will hear from the UNTOLD Foundation on the topic of teen mental health following traumatic brain injury, as well as signs and strategies to utilize. A second speaker will discuss how child and adolescent stroke survivors are a unique and somewhat rare population of students. The presentation will discuss how students following a stroke differ from other types of acquired brain injuries. Participants will be given information about advocating for a child with a stroke and the necessary supports for a successful school plan. The remaining portion of this workshop will focus on BrainSTEPS updates, program Best Practice Reviews, and case studies.
