Booklet helps adolescents identify strengths and difficulties after brain injury and describes learning strategies and accommodations needed in school.

This booklet on brain injury helps teenagers with any diagnosis describe special needs and become self-advocates.

Using short narratives and checklists, sections include friendships and interests, special needs, and assistance needed. It provides detailed information on how to negotiate accommodations and compensatory strategies in school after a traumatic brain injury.

The section on preparing for adulthood after TBI helps the adolescent think about work, hopes, dreams and personal happiness. It can be used independently by teenagers or with parents and brain injury therapists.
