Our brains help to define who we are and the aftermath of a brain injury can alter all aspects of a person’s being. Brain injuries can range in scope from mild to severe and can impact the brain in several ways, including cognitive functioning, sensory processing, sleep disorders, vision problems, speech/language difficulties, and perceptual difficulties.
For adoptive and guardianship families it may be difficult to know if your child has sustained a brain injury in the past. There are times when medical records/histories for the child are not easily obtained or, unfortunately, some children’s injuries were left untreated and unreported. If you believe your child may have sustained a brain injury seek medical attention immediately.
Right Turn has compiled a list of articles and services designed to support families who are struggling with the effects of a brain injury.
