Assessment Practices and Procedures in Children and Adolescents with Traumatic Brain Injury

This in-depth examination and discussion of how to assess the impact of traumatic brain injury on children and adolescents has a special focus on reintegrating students to school and the community. It is a much needed and valuable resource for rehabilitation clinicians, educators, psychologists, neuropsychologists and counselors in hospitals, schools, and private practice.

Pediatric neuropsychologist Dr. Stephen Hooper addresses the limitations of many current assessment methods with particular attention to the developmental impact of childhood trauma on cognition. He then provides a detailed framework by examining specific assessment constructs and procedures for motor functions, sensory functions, attention, language, visual processing, memory and learning, executive functions, and social and behavior functions. Each chapter has a special section on research findings and clinical practices for children and adolescents with traumatic brain injury (TBI) with recommendations for assessment procedures and measures with detailed tables for reference. This book is essential for all clinicians working with school age children.

Supporting Survivors and Caregivers after Brain Injury: A program for psychosocial support

This workbook for families, caregivers, and therapists is a unique program based on the premise that a brain injury affects not only the individual, but the entire family. Whether the survivor lives at home, in a residential program, in a nursing or assisted living facility, it provides a method for everyone to view the entire person, not just the brain injury.

It helps caregivers address the questions of:

  • How can I help the person with a brain injury sort out his life again?
  • What does she hope to achieve in the future and are her goals realistic?
  • How do I talk about these things with him?
  • How can I help care for her without taking over her life?

Many survivors and families talk about life before and after the brain injury. This workbook helps them work with caregivers to connect both these lives, regain control, and improve their lives.

The SABI program includes the person with a brain injury (the survivor), the family and caregivers in all aspects of care and support. Together, they work and function as a team.
