Objective: The Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended Pediatric Revision (GOS-E-Peds; Beers et al., 2012) is a structured interview designed and validated to assess functional abilities in multiple domains at 3 and 6 months after pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI). A recent study (Hernandez, Oscarson, Combs & Stavinoha, 2015) found a strong association between the GOS-E-Peds and the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, Second Edition at 12 and 24 months post-injury, lending support to the concurrent validity of the GOS-E-Peds more long-term. The present study investigated the relationship between GOS-E-Peds score and academic achievement at 12 and 24 months after moderate-to-severe TBI to further assess the ability of the instrument to characterize children more long-term and enhance understanding of academic outcomes. Method: Assessments were completed with thirty-eight participants at 12 months post-injury and with thirty participants at 24 months post-injury who had experienced moderate to severe TBI. Subjects were administered the GOS-E Peds...
