Learning and Cognitive Communication

Roberta DePompei, Ph.D. and Janet Tyler, Ph.D.

This manual is for educators when a child in the classroom has a brain injury. It details classroom behaviors caused by changes in attention, processing speed, short-term memory, and long-term memory after TBI. Manual also covers a child's changes in organization, problem solving, impulsivity, expressive language, receptive language, pragmatic language, and executive functioning after a brain injury.

Chapters discuss cognitive-communicative challenges when a student has an acquired brain injury and how they can affect learning and behavior in the classroom. Strategies and tips show how to build on cognitive-communicative strengths using an integrative approach. Methods are given for teachers and aides to assess effectiveness of teaching strategies.
