Abstract

This survey examines teacher knowledge of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Previous research has indicated teachers lack adequate knowledge of TBI. Also, students with TBI often go without special education services as a result of under-identification of TBI as a disability category within schools. The present survey examines teachers' knowledge, skills, and training related to TBI. Participant responses reveal that teachers are only somewhat knowledgeable about TBI and the majority of respondents had not received training on TBI. Results reveal that teachers with TBI training are significantly more knowledgeable than those without training.
