Welcome to BLaST Intermediate Unit 17’s BrainSTEPS Program
Each year, over 4,000 of Pennsylvania’s children survive severe traumatic brain injuries significant enough to require hospitalization. Many are left with life-altering difficulties in physical, cognitive, or behavioral functioning.
The Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania, under contract from the PA Department of Health and partnered with the PA Department of Education, has created the Child & Adolescent Brain Injury School Re-Entry Program called Brain STEPS (Strategies Teaching Educators, Parents, and Students). Brain STEPS is working to make sure that those who provide educational support to children with brain injury have a good understanding of the effects of the injury, the resulting challenges, and supports and interventions that will help these students achieve educational success through graduation.
