Adolescent Trauma
Limited Capacity seats available

According to the Center for Disease Control, in 2010, about 2.5 million emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, or deaths were associated with TBI—either alone or in combination with other injuries—in the United States.  In 2011, about 2,650 teens in the United States aged 16–19 were killed and almost 292,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes. That means that seven teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries.  Young people ages 15-24 represent only 14% of the U.S. population. However, they account for 30% ($19 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among males and 28% ($7 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among females. In 2012, 3,328 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,360 in 2011. An additional, 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2012, a 9% increase from the 387,000 people injured in 2011. According to Sport Injuries.org, children ages 5 to 14 account for nearly 40 percent of all sports-related injuries treated in hospitals. On average the rate and severity of injury increases with a child's age.

Early Intervention for Children
Limited Capacity seats available

In New York State, Early Intervention Services for Children is administered under the Department of Health through the Bureau of Early Intervention. Early Intervention is a voluntary program and is at no direct cost to families.  If there are any concerns regarding a child’s development a referral can be made.  Once a referral is made Early Intervention will assign an Initial Service Coordinator to explain the program and help the families in choosing an evaluation provider.  Evaluations will be conducted to determine eligibility.  In order to be eligible for the Early Intervention Program children must be under the age of three and have a diagnosed physical or mental condition that is likely to result in a in a developmental delay or established developmental delay in one or more areas of development: communication, physical, adaptive, cognitive and/or social-emotional.  Once eligibility is determined an Individualized Service Plan meeting will be held to develop the appropriate goals based on the child’s developmental needs.   The plan will include the services a child will be receiving along with location and mandate. An Ongoing Service Coordinator will be assigned to the family while they are in Early Intervention. Interventionist assigned will work closely with families to achieve stated outcomes. When a child nears the age of three, Early Intervention will assist the family with the process of transitioning out of the Early Intervention Program.
