The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), Division of Special Education in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Office of Special Health Care Needs has located an excellent on-line training source from the Tennessee Project Brain network. The training resource was originally developed by the Tennessee Disability Coalition through a collaboration of the Traumatic Brain Injury Program of the Tennessee Health Department and the Tennessee Department of Education, Division of Special Education. DESE has received permission to post this resource on our website.

The resource information is set up as a "virtual school" for TBI. You can enter the school and go into different parts of the school for information. The school has a "family resource center," a "nurse's office" (where you will find medical information), a "library" (for national resources on TBI), and a "classroom" (for academic and behavioral interventions) that are all teacher friendly.

In addition to the training resources, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Community and Public Health, Special Health Care Needs has developed a list of TBI resources specific to Missouri that can be used. To access the resources, please go to the DESE Effective Practices website at:  http://www.dese.mo.gov/divspeced/EffectivePractices/tbiresource.pdf.
