Is neurorehabilitation necessary for my child?

A brain injury or deficit in children has marked long term effects.  Neurorehabilitation is crucial for their ongoing learning and development and can help develop new skills and compensatory strategies to decrease the effects of the brain injury.

  • During development, new skills are built upon previously learned skills.  A brain injury early in life interrupts the child’s learning and development as the child matures.
  • Injuries to the frontal-temporal regions of the brain are the most common. The frontal-temporal region of the brain controls many cognitive abilities and new learning. Impairment to this region is likely to present cognitive and behavioral challenges at each new developmental phase.
  • Cognitively and behavioral difficulties oftentimes emerge in late adolescence and young adulthood following brain injury.
