Question

What special issues arise when attempting to reintegrate children into the community?

Answer

Some issues may arise when the child attempts to return to school. Many children do not meet the strict definitions of TBI as defined by each state. Transition back to school can be difficult for children due to personality changes, behavioral problems, and difficulty with interpersonal relationships.
