All About Me! (Children)

Interactive booklet helps elementary school age children identify the physical, cognitive, and behavioral effects of traumatic brain injury and describes help needed in school.

Stupid, weird, dorky. These are words that friends and classmates use to describe a child with a brain injury. Just when a child with a brain injury needs help and understanding the most, friends may disappear, make taunting remarks or imitate behaviors.

This booklet helps elementary school age children understand brain injury or any disablity by using checklists and answering questions. Written in kid friendly language, sections covers how I got hurt, what helps me at school, how I learn best, things that make it hard for me to pay attention, and what I want to get better at. Also covers things that scare me, what makes me happy, how I act if I am having a problem, and what I want to be when I get older.
