Trainings

Project BRAIN provides trainings, free of charge, to help those who support students with TBI understand the nature of brain injury and the unique needs of this group of children and young adults. Interested in hosting a training at your school or organization? Contact us at: tbi@tndisability.org for more information.

Brain Injury 101:

The primary objective of “Brain Injury 101” is to help people who support students with TBI understand the nature of brain injury and the unique needs of this group of children and young adults.

Designed by experts in pediatric brain injury, "Brain Injury 101" is an interactive session that is ideally two hours in length. Participants leave with educational materials which serve as a useful resource long after they attend. 

Concussion Within Our Sports Community:

In January 2014, the new Sports Concussion Management law in Tennessee took effect. Project BRAIN can help you and your school or sports league understand what this law means and how to follow it. Read more about the law at: http://health.state.tn.us/tbi/concussion.htm
 
Emergency department visits for sports and recreation related TBIs, including concussions, among children and adolescents increased by 60% in the last 10 years. Knowing what to do about a TBI in the school gym, stadium or field is essential.
 

Partners In Communication:

Supporting Student Transitions from the Hospital to Home to School after injury. 

This training is designed specifically for healthcare professionals.  They will learn how a student’s school  and home life may change following an injury.  This training includes a PowerPoint presentation, self-guided train-the-trainer manual and a library of resources.
