From Library Journal
This is a comprehensive resource for families and professionals working with children and adolescents who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Editor Schoenbrodt, chair of the department of speech pathology/audiology at Loyola College and a speech and language pathologist specializing in the treatment of children with TBI and language-learning disabilities, presents a lengthy but very readable overview. Ten chapters, all written by medical specialists, educators, and a lawyer, cover a broad range of issues relating to medical treatment; coping and adjustment; the effects on cognition, speech, and language; the resulting behaviors and their modification; educational needs; and legal concerns. Graphs and charts are provided for parents and caretakers. Most chapters feature a portion of a representative case study of a boy who sustained serious closed-head trauma at the age of eight. Throughout, statements made by parents of other children who have suffered TBI add a personal perspective. Intended to offer reassurance and practical information, this work successfully presents complex medical concepts and terminology in a most understandable context and would be an excellent resource for parents as well as rehabilitation professionals. Highly recommended. Deborah Anne Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody

Last week my son left for a 2 year Peace Corps assignment, having graduated from college and obtained a master's degree in teaching English as a second language. It was a struggle for him but his experience proves that there is hope even in the face of extraordinary pessimism from treating physicians.
