Understand Your Child’s Post-Concussion Experience To Help Him

The initial crisis is over. Your child has been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and is home with you. You may worry about your child’s future. What should you expect and how can you help your child recover?

What Your Child May Experience Following a Concussion

Traumatic brain injuries are unique. It is hard to predict how your child is going to react to the injury as it depends on the extent of the injury, the part of the brain that was hurt, and other factors. However, your child may experience:

  • Denial
  • Grief
  • Fear
  • Frustration

Alternatively, your child may show limited awareness of his or her brain injury or limitations.

Any of these things can be difficult not only for your child, but also for you as a parent. It may take a team approach for you to help your child through this difficult time. A team may include not only you and your child, but also:

  • School teachers and administrators
  • A psychological counselor
  • Doctors
  • Friends and relatives
  • A Fairfax brain injury attorney

Together, the team may work to help your child recover to the greatest extent possible.
