Children's Traumatic Brain Injury

Linda Hollander

A mild type of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), concussion has received a lot of attention in the media. Children with TBI may have compromised visual systems depending on the extent of the injury, which frequently leads to diplopia, suboptimal vision, and problems with visual processing. These kids require careful examination and treatment from orthoptists and ophthalmologists. A multidisciplinary team-based approach to care will be advantageous to many. The evaluation, diagnosis, and long-term follow-up of kids with TBI will all be covered in this symposium.
