This article discusses the education of children with traumatic brain injuries and students suffering with the after-effects of such injuries. The article evaluates how these effects have the potential of making children with these injuries to be incapable of accomplishing normal classroom tasks as well as social and behavioral demands. Children at risk for being diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries are evaluated by the Brain Injury Association.
