By [posts-author-link] on [date]
The Community Brain Injury Program (CPIB) for Children & Youth in British Columbia website in Canada provides information and links to resources on concussions and brain injury. Visitors to the site can learn about acquired brain injuries, causes of brain injuries, concussion (a type of brain injury) and its symptoms, as well as the recovery process. An interactive feature of the website allows visitors to the site to click on areas of a map of the brain to learn about its specific functions and possible consequences associated with injury to that area of the brain. A section for Families and Youth is also provided that covers topics ranging from helping parents and youth to prepare for returning to school and community activities or work, to caring for yourself during your child’s rehabilitation.
Of particular interest to teachers is a subsection called “Tips & Resources” that has links to a resource guide for schools published by the BC Ministry of Education, titled “Teaching Students with Acquired Brain Injury”.
