The dynamics of head injury, particularly for children, pose a challenge for rehabilitation professionals. While a great deal of information has come to the fore in recent years elucidating the nature of brain-behavior relationships, it has focused primarily upon diagnostic considerations. Attention to the development of improved techniques of treatment is becoming increasingly widespread. Cognitive rehabilitation therapy is an emerging branch of rehabilitation attempting to address the intervention needs of traumatically head injured children. Its full consideration must encompass relevant knowns in neuropsychology, patterns of recovery of victims, its place in a growing Cognitive Science, and a functional view of cognitive processes upon which responsible treatment may be based.
