The effects on children who suffer from pediatric brain injuries differ in several ways from the effects these injuries have on adults. The long-term effects will vary depending on age, but since the brain of a child is still developing, any damage to the brain can dramatically alter the course of their cognitive development.
Since the child’s brain is not fully-developed, this “plasticity” could work in their favor by allowing neurons to bypass damaged tissue, thus allowing other parts of the brain to take over for those areas. Unfortunately, this is not guaranteed.
Following a brain injury, many of the fundamental building blocks to learning are still retained and used. Unfortunately, these building blocks are minimal in very young children, thus handicapping them in comparison to older children and adults suffering the same type of brain injury.
It may not be possible to see the effects of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) immediately following an injury. In many cases, the effects only present themselves during the course of the child’s development when the affected skills are called in to use. For example, it may not be possible to notice any problems in abstract thinking until the child who suffered a TBI reaches the age when that particular skill is called upon.
Treatment can be expensive.
Children who suffer pediatric brain injuries are often expected to undergo long-term treatment. Treatment for brain injuries can include surgery, rehabilitative care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, cognitive therapy, and use of various types of assistive devices. Some victims may need round-the-clock care and assistance with the most-basic of needs for the rest of their life. Meeting these needs can be quite expensive, and most insurance policies do not cover anywhere close to the amount needed to pay for such treatment.
