Children: What to Expect



Brain injury symptoms in children and teens are similar to those experienced by adults, but the functional impact can be very different. Children are not small adults; the brain of a child is still developing.

At one time it was thought that brain injury did not affect children as much as adults because they were young and resilient and could “bounce back.” While the young and resilient part is true, a child’s brain continues to develop until the early/mid-twenties, so some problems are not immediately apparent.  As they age and grow into becoming an adult, children often face issues their uninjured siblings and friends don’t.
