Children

  • Brain Injury Survival Kit: 365 Tips, Tools and Tricks to Deal with Cognitive Function Loss
    By Cheryle Sullivan

    Purchase from Amazon.com

    This book is a great road map for people with brain injury and for families of people with brain injury. What this book does not do: It does not delve on the reasons how or why there is brain damage, or to the degree or extent of brain damage. It does not compare severe vs. mild brain damage. It does tell of all kinds of symptoms, many more than I personally have. Dr. Sullivan showed ways to get around them or ways to deal with them. But most importantly she showed me that one can learn to accept and live with brain damage. My life changed and I had no direction from the medical field. The doctors fixed the physical, but then left me adrift. I read several books once my reading comprehension returned and not one of the books offered any solutions to fix or help. Dr. Sullivan's book is a no nonsense book with honest to goodness answers for ways to deal with every day issues, not only to help the person with a brain injury, but will also help the family of the brain injured understand what is happening and how to help. She also offers resources for all kinds of additional help that is available. This book is easy to read and will be used time & time again.

  • Children With Traumatic Brain Injury: A Parent's Guide (The Special Needs Collection)
    By Lisa Schoenbrodt

    Purchase from Amazon.com

    As a parent of a son with TBI, I have battled schools to find a teacher, administrator, specialist . . . anyone who understands the confusion and disorganization in my son's brain. This book, among other things, clearly states the stages of brain rehabilitation, lists possible symptoms, explains in layman's terms how things can appear one way one day, and differently the next. I can speak intelligently to untrained educators using quotes from this book to explain aberrant and unexpected behavior as exhibited by my son. And believe me, the teachers are UNTRAINED in TBI. Ask me, I am a teacher! Everything I have learned about TBI, I taught myself after my son fell and damaged his brain — and this book is the best place to start that I can recommend.

  • Reconstructing David
    By Deanna Scott

    An intimate story of a mother's dedication and devotion to her teenage son's recovery after a brutal motorcycle accident, and the things she learned through David's eight weeks in a coma from traumatic brain injury.

You will be enraged, you will laugh, you will cry, and to top it all you will finish the book wanting to know more and looking forward to Book 2.
