Dr. Brenda Johnson is highly specialized in a niche area of education & transition following pediatric child, teen, & young adult brain injury. She received her Doctorate from Johns Hopkins University specializing in Mind, Brain, & Teaching (educational neuroscience).
Dr. Johnson investigates brain injury from a functional neurodevelopmental & clinical perspective, looking at cognitive, behavioral, socio-emotional, & learning skills by examining a student’s home, school, & community activities of daily living following all severities of pediatric brain injury.
School-based pre- & post-brain injury investigation is a nuanced area that requires expert interpretation. Dr. Johnson identifies if & to what extent a brain injury has impacted learning & behavior. Brain injury can affect skills that have not yet matured, depending on areas of the brain that were damaged & at what point in development. New cognitive or behavior deficits can emerge as the child's brain develops over time.
