There have been so many decisions to make since your child suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident. You had to decide which doctor would treat your child and which Kansas City auto accident attorney would help your child get the financial and legal recovery that your child deserves. Now that your child is stable it is time to get your child back to school even if your child is not able to learn in the same way that he or she was able to learn prior to the crash.
Your Child Deserves a Quality Education
When your child is ready to return to school, it is important to contact the school and request a meeting. Your child may be eligible for a Section 504 plan or Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The school may need to make reasonable accommodations or provide specialized instruction that is designed to meet your child’s needs. Your child’s education has always been important and that hasn’t changed. However, the manner in which your child receives the education may be changed. Thus, it is important to talk to the school and to make sure that your child can continue learning after his or Kansas City car accident brain injury.

The school may be legally required to help your child access the curriculum and continue learning. However, your child may also need additional rehabilitation services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, or psychological therapy beyond what the school is able to provide. This can be expensive, as can your child’s medical expenses.
