A child’s brain is more vulnerable to a traumatic injury than an adult’s brain because it is still developing. Using clear language and drawings that parents and educators can readily understand, this booklet describes the anatomy of the brain and how it functions. It explains why consequences of an earlier injury may show up over time in school as the child’s brain develops and matures.
This information helps parents and educators track the child’s progress in school and be alert for changes in learning and behavior that may be related to the brain injury. Every parent and teacher should have this booklet to understand why traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability among children.
