Dr. Ross Greene, pediatric neuropsychologist at Virginia Tech University says, "Your explanation guides your intervention." The cognitive and neurobehavioral consequences of a brain injury undermines the ability of individuals to participate in programs conventionally and too often an undiagnosed brain injury leads to poor program outcomes and premature discharge due to misattribution of behavior by the programs serving them.
In this session you will be provided a brief introduction of what constitutes a brain injury, learn how to screen for a brain injury, and be provided with tools to "change your intervention" to improve treatment outcomes when you accommodate for a brain injury.
