Pearson's EBP Briefs: The Effectiveness of Academic Accommodations for School-Age Students With Traumatic Brain Injury

492 Reviews

1 Hour  

Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “What are the evidence-based classroom accommodations for school-age students with traumatic brain injury who are struggling academically, and do they improve academic performance as compared to no classroom accommodations?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CELF-5 Metalinguistics (Wiig & Secord, 2014).
