I’ve worked with brain-damaged kids in a summer camp environment, but I never knew the cause of the damage. I think a neighbor can be said to have TBI, though. He experienced a work-related accident that resulted in permanent damage to his brain and body. I didn’t know him before his accident, so I’m not aware of the differences, but I see some of the effects. His recovery has been great, and he leads a relatively normal life, but it’s not the life he had before.
Dang it! I wish I had thought to have him read the book and join this discussion. I hate ideas that show up late to the game.
