Representing a sequel to a similar snapshot in mid-2010, this article provides an updated overview of the judicial and administrative case law concerning students with traumatic
and nontraumatic brain injury from pre-K to grade 12. The scope is limited to cases under the
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the pair of disability-based civil rights statutes, Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The analysis focuses on the frequency and outcomes these published rulings, with the discussion extending to the empirical limitations and professional implications of the findings.
