Title: Spinal Cord Injury SCI


1
Spinal Cord Injury(SCI)
  • SPED 100 Exceptional Children
  • By Nicole A. Jewell May 3, 2006

SCIDefining the disability
  • A spinal cord injury begins with a sudden,
    traumatic blow to the spine that fractures or
    dislocates surrounding vertebrae.

    children.

SCITreatments
  • Improved emergency care for people with spinal
    cord injuries and aggressive treatment and
    rehabilitation can minimize damage to the nervous
    system and even restore limited abilities. 
  • Rehabilitation programs combine physical
    therapies with skill-building activities and
    counseling to provide social and emotional
    support.

SCIResearch being done
  • The National Institute of Neurological Disorders
    and Stroke (NINDS) conducts spinal cord research
    in its laboratories.
  • Many universities are conducting studies to help
    treat spinal cord injuries to help with quicker
    rehabilitation and recovery.
  • National Institute for Disability and
    Rehabilitation Research is conducting research
    about the biological processes of skin breakdown
    and healing in SCI cases.

SCI in the classroomHow teachers can adapt..
  • Have education materials that are SCI sensitive
    so that the students can learn easier.
  • Make sure the classroom is wheelchair accessible
    and all the equipment in the classroom, i.e.
    computers, reading centers, desks, etc.
  • Make sure the SCI child can be involved in group
    activities, dont just assume they should sit
    back and watch.
  • Give the student extra time to get around in the
    class, to take tests, etc. Modifications will be
    essential.
  • Let the student be involved in regular classroom
    activities as often as probable, but give them
    independent activities that will be sensitive to
    their needs too.

SCIConclusion
  • Spinal Cord Injuries can be either complete or
    incomplete. This means that either the injury can
    be rehabilitated, or not. Students in the
    classroom should be treated accordingly.
