Brain Injury 

As a result of traumatic (open or closed brain injuries) and acquired brain injury (near-drownings, strokes, brain tumors, brain infections, etc.), children and adolescents may experience a wide range of physical, cognitive and psychosocial problems.  These problems may include: reduced stamina, seizures, motor difficulties, headaches, hearing losses, vision problems, memory deficits, reduced intellectual functioning, organizational impairments, attention and concentration difficulties, language impairments, executive functioning difficulties, reduced academic functioning, impulsivity, irritability, poor frustration tolerance, socially inappropriate behaviors, and depression.

 

Some problems may be temporary; others may last months or even years. These problems will affect the child's daily functioning and can have a major impact on learning.

 

While children who have moderate-to-severe injuries tend to have the most pronounced challenges, studies have shown that even a mild brain injury/concussion can create significant learning and behavioral problems for some children.
