Children & Brain Injury
While the symptoms of a brain injury in children are similar to those experienced by adults, the functional impact can be very different. Children are not little adults; the brain of a child is still developing. The cognitive impairments of children with brain injury may not be immediately obvious after the injury, but may become apparent as the child gets older. These implications can create lifetime challenges for living and learning for children, their families, schools, and communities. In this section, you will find various resources for dealing with the most common implications of brain injury in children.
Cognitive strategies for juvenile clients, parent’s/caregivers, community mental health & criminal justice professionals.

Juvenile TBI Curriculum
The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Education & Skill-Building Youth Group Curriculum was developed in partnership with MINDSOURCE-Brain Injury Network and University of Denver Graduate Students.
The goal of the TBI Education & Skill-Building group is to provide justice-involved individuals who have screened positive for traumatic brain injury (TBI) with the insight and tools to better cope with the symptoms that they deal with, such as short-term memory loss, delayed speed of processing, and difficulty with emotional regulation.
