Jeremy is 15 years old. He sustained a severe brain injury in a car accident 4 years ago. After his injury, he completed a 6-week inpatient rehabilitation program before discharge to his parents’ home. His school worked hard to integrate him back into full-time attendance and provided assistance including speech-language treatment and tutoring in reading and math.
Jeremy has struggled in school despite this additional assistance. He has poor attention and memory, is disruptive in class, and makes inappropriate comments to teachers and peers. He has a slight limp and mildly dysarthric speech. He has a few friends, but his poor social skills make sustaining these friendships difficult.
