Has trouble paying attention to things, since the injury
Why It Happens:
When we are under a lot of stress, feel really jumpy or on guard, or have thoughts of what happened popping into mind, it can be hard to pay attention at times. Some head injuries can lead to concentration problems (be sure to ask your child’s doctor about what to expect).
Is This a Problem?:
Is difficulty concentrating getting in the way of schoolwork, or your child’s ability to take part in other activities or sports?
