Hi everyone,

I rarely post to this group, but I've never really had much to say or ask about.  First of all, I'm Emily and I'm a 1st year graduate student of SLP at the University of South Dakota (USD).  Currently I am on a committee to help prepare for a speech and hearing fair our on-campus clinic will be hosting next October for people in the military and their families.  We secured a grant to put this on and are very excited about it.

What I am wondering is if anyone has or knows about a screening tool to detect a mild TBI for young adults to older adults (the military population)?

We have materials to screen children (if they bring their children with them) for language and speech issues, but would like to be able to provide screenings for veterans/military persons who may have an undiagnosed mild TBI or other underlying problem.

Please let me know if you have something or know of something that I could look up or research that would help us out.  Thank you so very much! 

Emily
