Traumatic Brain Injury

There are frequently deficits in attention and speed of information processing with TBI. TBI patients showed prolonged simple and choice reaction times throughout all tasks and significant difficulty with integrating the tactile modality. Children with moderate or severe TBI are at risk for reduced multisensory integration efficiency and decreased general neurocognitive functioning.

When the sensory systems are intact, learning is effortless and easy.
Problems with any sensory system can lead to problems with focus, behavior and listening.
