In Harm’s Way Traumatic Brain Injury in Young Children: Brain Injury Awareness for Head Start Providers (DVD)

Young Children ages 0-4 are especially vulnerable to Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) that arise from falls, accidents, and Non-Accidental Head Trauma.  Too often children with unidentified TBI’s are labeled with behavioral problems or mental deficiencies that impact the remainder of their lives.  This DVD provides education to Head Start providers that will improve their awareness and recognition of TBI’s and the special roles they can play in identifying potential TBI’s in young children and facilitating learning in children identified with TBI.  39 minutes.
