Abstract

School-based speech-language pathologists from 10 states responded to a survey concerning their readiness to provide services to students with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Survey responses provided a means of exploring speech-language pathologists' knowledge of TBI and facilitated recognition of accurate and inaccurate conceptions held by school-based speech-language pathologists concerning the characteristics and behaviors, criteria for identification and verification, and procedures for the assessment, treatment, and reintegration of students with TBI. Findings indicated that training had a positive effect on speech-language pathologists' knowledge of assessment, treatment, and overall management of students with TBI; however, a large percentage of school-based speech-language pathologists remain uncertain about providing services to students with TBI even after receiving specific TBI training. Furthermore, school-based speech-language pathologists continue to hold many misconceptions concerning TBI and its consequences.
