Traumatic Brain Injury
The TBI consulting team acts as a liaison to help families and students with reentering school after sustaining a brain injury. The team offers in-service training and consultation to educators upon request.
IMESD partners with local school districts in Region One, the Teaching Research Institute and the Oregon Department of Education to identify students ages 0 to 21 with a traumatic brain injury and provide them with support and services to improve their ability to access their education and manage overall quality of life.
