In the Classroom: Supporting Students with TBI

Jody Slocumb, Ann Glang, & Melissa McCart

This project is developing In the Classroom, a comprehensive web-based educational and training resource for classroom teachers. The program includes interactive learning modules offering specific strategies and techniques for managing TBI-related cognitive, behavioral, and social problems in the school setting. Modules include Return to School, Study Strategies, Managing Behavior and others. The resource includes printable forms, resource links and practical tools for classroom use. 

The program was developed in partnership with the CBIRT Advisory Board, which includes educators from across the country, youth with TBI, family members, and state Department of Education partners. Results from a pilot test showed gains in educator skills, knowledge, and behavioral intention to use the new strategies. The program is currently being evaluated in a randomized controlled trial.
