The rate of recovery and the range of neurological, behavioral, social, and academic consequences following a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) varies significantly from child to child. As a result, assessing the educational needs of children who return to the educational setting with a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be challenging. Understanding the dynamics of recovery and applying a systematic approach to assessing the educational needs of children returning to school following a moderate or severe TBI helps multidisciplinary teams develop effective school-based interventions. The TBI-SNNAP is a systematic, solution-oriented, problem-solving approach to the assessment of children who have sustained a moderate or severe TBI. This session will present information on recovery following moderate to severe TBI, common functional impairments that can adversely affect educational performance, domains for evaluation, and the TBI-SNNAP model.
