Children who experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) commonly have unmet treatment needs during the two years after the injury. Among children with service needs, increased time after TBI and complicated mild TBI were associated with a higher likelihood of unmet rather than met service needs. Unmet need was highest for physiatry, educational services, and speech therapy. These findings were reported in “Unmet Rehabilitation Needs After Hospitalization for Traumatic Brain Injury” by Molly M. Fuentes, Jin Wang, Juliet Haarbauer-Krupa, Keith Owen Yeates, Dennis Durbin, Mark R. Zonfrillo, Kenneth M. Jaffe, Nancy Temkin, David Tulsky, Hilary Bertisch, and Frederick P . . .
