Tramatic Brain Injury

Tramatic brain injury (TBI) is any impairment developed from a traumatic brain injury that negatively affects educational performance. (Friend & Bursuck, 2009)

TBI often called acquired brain injury, occurs when a student experiences trauma from an external force to the head which results to an injury to the brain. It is the leading cause of death in children, and disabilities in children. Often children will return to school during their recovery process. (Friend & Bursuck, 2009)
