Hospital-to-school transitions following an acquired brain injury: Regaining and reconsidering occupations
Register online by August 30, 2017 - 9/5/2017

 

Presenter: Laura Hartman

 
School is a complex occupational environment with competing demands and foci for children. The multitude of occupations and requirements is further complicated when children experience acquired brain injury (ABI). This webinar will explore children’s hospital-to-school transition experiences following ABI. We will illuminate the competing demands and conflicts in coordinating services, helping families navigate relevant systems and policies, and understand the various physical, psychosocial, and environmental contributors to successful school reintegration in light of the multifaceted sequelae of ABI. Discussion will include practices and resources that allow occupational therapists to facilitate comfortable and successful transitions for children.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

1. Thoughtfully consider the different structures that impact children’s and families’ complex transitions from hospital to school environments following ABI;
2. Identify and understand overlapping and possibly conflicting needs and occupational goals of the child, their family, therapists, teachers, and peers;
3. Explore resources and practices that can optimize hospital-to-school transitions for children and families.
