Poster Deadline EXTENDED through 29 June, 1:00 PM EDT >>

 

2018 GOALS

  • Complete Pediatric Cognitive Rehabilitation Systematic Review
  • Continuation of the Mark Ylvisaker Memorial Pediatric Symposium
  • Member Initiated projects and collaborations

 


CURRENT PROJECTS

This task force led by Julie Haarbauer-Krupa and Drew Nagele, recently published an article in JHTR about service delivery for kids and the gaps and problems parents face in navigating between rehabilitation and school services.

Current projects involve an examination of translation of findings into recommendations in a clinical setting, as well as a systematic review of cognitive rehabilitation and children. A systematic review of cognitive rehabilitation involving mild traumatic brain injury and children is under development and led by Jonathan Dodd.

Moreover, Drew Nagele is spearheading an initiative on identifying and understanding the needs of healthcare and educational professionals working with children with TBI. He leads a team of task force members, which are getting ready to present the results of this study in the form of a manuscript. A manual on defining the needs of children transitioning to adulthood is in its early stages of conceptualization.
