Description:

The Oregon Traumatic Brain Injury Educational Consulting Team is funded by a contract with the Oregon Department of Education to support students age 0–21 with TBI. The Center on Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT) leads the Oregon TBI team by working closely with the Regional Programs for Low Incidence Disabilities to provide statewide leadership, training and consultation, a website, library services, and other supports as requested. After receiving 40–50 hours of training and mentorship, TBI team members work within one of nine state regions under the leadership of their regional TBI liaison to consult with and coach school district personnel in knowledge-based and evidence-based methods to support students with TBI and their families.
