Pediatric Brain Injury Handouts (Siblings, Parents, and Providers)
This handout accompanies the course: Where We Fail Children with Acquired Brain Injury – And What to Do About It. This includes the following three handouts:
Handout: When Your Sibling Has a Brain Injury
This handout is designed to share with child siblings of brain injury survivors. Siblings may benefit from reading through this handout with an adult in a conversational style, checking for comprehension and allowing time for questions.
The handout references reaching out to trusted adults and it may be helpful to assist the child in identifying these safe adults in their life.
Handout: When Your Child Has a Brain Injury
This handout is designed to share with parents of brain injury survivors. It covers the cognitive, behavioral, social, and academic changes that may occur with a brain injury.
Handout: Please Refer Children with Mild, Moderate, and Severe Brain Injury
This handout is designed for physicians and other healthcare providers who are often the first point of contact for child survivors of brain injury. There is room at the bottom of the handout to include your specific contact details so that you can help facilitate appropriate referrals within your community. If you do choose to share this document, provide multiple copies to providers and partner with your local Brain Injury Alliance as able to improve community response to pediatric brain injury.
