This volume provides an evidence base for clinical practice specific to traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained during childhood, using a biological-psychosocial conceptual framework. Unlike previous books that have focused on a particular aspect of pediatric TBI, such as assessment or intervention, this book covers a broad scope of topics that offers the reader a comprehensive outlook on the characteristics and repercussions of pediatric TBI, from the time of the accident and throughout the lifespan. The book takes a clinical perspective incorporating current and past research and evidence regarding advances that have occurred in areas such as outcomes, predictors, medical technology, and rehabilitation post-TBI. The topics are illustrated with past and current research, as well as a range of clinical case studies. The volume is invaluable to established and new clinicians and researchers, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who work in the field of pediatric TBI field, including psychologists, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, geneticists, educators, pediatricians, rehabilitationists, and representatives from the legal profession.
