Understanding Young Brain Injury
Young brain injury refers to any acquired brain injury that occurs during childhood or adolescence. This includes traumatic brain injuries resulting from accidents, sports-related injuries, or physical abuse, as well as non-traumatic brain injuries such as those caused by infections, strokes, or tumors.
These injuries can have a profound impact on various aspects of a young individual's life, including cognitive abilities, physical and motor skills, emotional well-being, and overall development. The effects can be long-lasting and may require specialized care and support.
