Traumatic Brain Injury Services
- Our services
- Professional Learning
In partnership with the communities we serve, Northwest Regional Education Service District improves student learning by providing equitable access to high-quality services and support to Oregon's children and families throughout our diverse region.
NWRESD provides Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Consultation and Professional Development through a grant from the Oregon Department Of Education. The grant supports a Traumatic Brain Injury Liaison who connects educators, families and students to resources both within our region and throughout the state. The TBI Liaison also works closely with members of the Statewide TBI team, which includes professionals throughout our region who have volunteered to complete professional learning activities needed to provide consultation within their school district.
NWRESD’s TBI Liaison coordinates with district TBI team members to build capacity within school districts to serve students with brain injury. The liaison is available to provide consultation with educators, parents and students around Concussion Management, Return to Learn, Section 504 / IEP Development, and Special Education Evaluation.
Professional Learning / Training
NWRESD sponsors TBI training throughout the year within our region while also collaborating with other regional programs and with the Center for Brain Injury Research and Training at the University of Oregon (CBIRT.org) to ensure access to professional learning throughout the state.
