Description

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a national epidemic, with an estimated one in five children being affected before age ten (INS, 2020). This rate will likely increase due to coronavirus and its potential complications. School psychologists can help develop interventions for these children, but research suggests they feel underprepared to address TBI (Glang et al., 2017). This paper will provide a neuropsychological background in TBI, including coronavirus effects, and discuss assessment and intervention strategies.
