Abstract

Children who suffer moderately severe-to-severe traumatic brain injury often fail to develop normal cognitive and affective functioning necessary for independent adult living. The cognitive and psychiatric consequences of pediatric traumatic brain injury are outlined and 6 barriers to providing neuropsychological rehabilitation for these children are identified. Suggestions are made to help reduce the impact of those barriers.
