Center for Disabilities announces Dr Janet Tyler as the presenter at the Traumatic Brain Injury
For over 23 years, Dr. Tyler served as director of an innovative statewide program in Kansas that provided training, consultations, and technical assistance to educators serving students with brain injuries and their families. There she developed the first of its kind program for training school personnel to serve students with TBI that went on to serve as a national training model.
The summer institute is free for South Dakota educators thanks to funding from the South Dakota Department of Education, Special Education Programs. Topics include “Definition, Demographics, and Causes of TBI,” “Recovery Process, Concussion, and Long-Term Sequela of TBI,” “Acquired Brain Injuries (e.g., brain tumors, brain infections, etc.),” “Transition to Post-Secondary Education, Adult Services and Community” and even more. Continuing education credits and one graduate level credit from the University of South Dakota are available.
“Dr. Tyler brings decades of experience working with individuals diagnosed with TBI, as well as designing programs and supporting professionals working with TBI,” said Eric Kurtz, Ph.D., Center for Disabilities director of clinical operations. “It’s a great opportunity for educators, service providers, or anyone working with individuals with a TBI that cannot be passed up.”
