Brain Injury Resource Team
Mississippi Bend AEA’s Brain Injury (BI) Resource Team provides consultation to building-level teams for planning and delivery of educational services for students who have experienced an acquired brain injury. BI team members provide support by serving as a liaison between physicians and schools, assisting with transitions/return to school after an injury, reviewing records, observing students, and consulting with building teams, including parents, to assist in developing individualized recommendations and accommodations in order to optimize achievement for students impacted by a brain injury. Because brain injuries are highly variable, the team is available for on-going support as individuals with brain injuries progress through a school system. The BI team also maintains a resource of current literature and services available to building team, students, and families.
