School Reintegration

School reintegration after pediatric TBI is a crucial step in the rehabilitation process. Medical professionals caring for these children need to have a working knowledge of the laws and procedures that govern the provision of special education services for children with TBI. A child with TBI may qualify for special education services under the Individuals With Dis abilities Education Act (2004). Special education services for a child with TBI would include the development of an Individualized Education Plan, which outlines the individual goals for the child's education and the intervention team's plan for addressing each goal. An Individualized Education Plan may include classroom accommodations, resource room instruction, or individual therapies (e.g., physical, occupational, and speech-language therapies). If formal special education services are not needed, children with disabilities may receive less individualized accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. An excellent review of the relevant special education laws as they pertain to children and adolescents with neurological involvement is presented by Maedgen and Semrud-Clikeman (2007).
