It was good to read about the effects and treatments of TBI
Review by: Alice on November 23, 2014
I really enjoy working with patients with TBI, however I haven't had a lot of experience working with children who have had a TBI. I assumed that the younger the child with a TBI would do better. I learned a lot of new information to help me in my therapy. I work with many children and often wonder if some of these kids had TBI's that went uncharted. Parents may be afraid to take them to the hospital after they have fallen or sustained a head injury.
