If you or a loved one sustains a traumatic brain injury – whether it is mild, moderate, or severe – it is a difficult time in your life. Brain injuries often require extensive rehabilitation, and can have long lasting effects.
It can be particularly unfortunate when a child sustains a brain injury, as their brains are still developing. As they go through recovery and reintegration to everyday life, you may wonder what to expect as a result of their injury in the future.
Brain injury is complicated, and often not well understood by people who don’t specialize in studying and treating it. Due to this, many myths about brain injury in general, and child brain injury in particular, are perpetuated in the common discourse. This causes misunderstandings and can change the way people react to and treat the injured child.
For this reason, I have created the following infographic to clear up some of the most common myths about child brain injury:
