[Dr. Ann Glang] There are a lot of tools and resources for learning about childhood brain injury on the Internet. And they vary from here's basic TBI 101, what happens when a child has a brain injury, the mechanisms of injury, what kinds of effects you see in the classroom, how their family is impacted. There are video-based and text-based materials on the web, as well as there's DVDs and CDs that you can access. We have put together—at my office at Teaching Research Institute— with Pat Sublette and some other colleagues, we've put together TBIed.org. And that website is very practical. It has things like, "So you need to develop an Individual Education Plan for a child. What kinds of things do you need to make sure you include?" We have forms there and lots of very practical hands-on information for educators who are working with kids with brain injury.
