The incidence rates of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are increasing, yet educators continue to be inadequately trained in assessing and serving students who have sustained a TBI. This study examines the efficacy of a half-day TBI training program for Ohio school psychologists designed to improve their knowledge and skills. Results indicated there was little increase in level of knowledge and skills from the pre-workshop to follow-up surveys. School Psychologists exhibited an increase over time in confidence related to their decision making abilities in working with students with TBI. Given the results of this study, a need for increased training for school psychologists is needed in the area of TBI.
