Because... 1) You may be a parent trying to get your child an IEP but are getting pushed towards the MTSS system first (this can be good or bad!) 2) You may be seeing a need your child has that isn't covered by their IEP currently...and they may want to provide support for THIS need through MTSS process first.

Traumatic Brain Injuries are one of the hardest categories because that injury is one that is unseen to the naked eye. Many times behaviors and vision complications are just missed because this category requires a lot of medical knowledge.

In this episode we:  1. Use Colorado's eligibility checklist as an example to break down TBI 2. Talk about commonly missed opportunities for parent advocacy to get that effective IEP in this process 3. Talk about resources and frameworks that help the school IEP team not miss a need that your child may have! Shownotes Facebook Group Colorado's Building Blocks of Brain Development and Resources
