Children with brain injury

Every year 70,000 children are admitted to hospital with a head injury, whether traumatic (as a result of an accident or fall) or non-traumatic (possibly due to an infection or tumour).

The human brain takes around 20 years to develop fully, so one of the biggest challenges of dealing with children who have suffered a brain injury is being able to predict the impact of that injury on their development; if part of the brain is injured during the crucial early stages of development, a child may never be able to pick up some of the skills that would normally be expected. Some of the effects might not become apparent until the injured part of the brain starts to be used.
