Traumatic Brain Injury Training



In close coordination with the Virginia Department of Education, the TBI training project provides opportunities for Virginia Local Education Agency teams to participate in a 3-day training series on traumatic brain injury. Teams work together during the training series to develop actions plan to address the needs of students with brain injuries and concussions in schools in their LEA. Each year a follow-up training day is held to provide additional updates and training. Additionally, the project provides information and assistance throughout the year to team members on new developments and professional development opportunities.
