Brain Injury and Learning Difficulties

The statistics show that 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. And it is children aged between 0 to 4 years and older adolescents aged 15 to 19 years, that are among the groups most likely to sustain a TBI. And because children’s brains are still developing, the toll of a brain injury on a child can sometimes be quite serious.

So how do you know if your child has concussion? You need to watch out for the following symptoms.
If you child has had a fall and you recognise these symptoms, a quick response can aid their recovery and prevent further brain damage.
