TBI.01. Traumatic Brain Injury in Pediatric and Adolescent Populations



Ecological neurehabilitation should consider three integrated components that comprise an individual: the biological (brain); cultural (environment/context); and the individual (self). Since acquired brain injury (ABI) is a life-long process, it requires an ecological neurorehabilitation program that is sustainable throughout the patient’s development and can be incorporated into daily routines, as well as adapted to the skills and interests inherent to each stage of life. During childhood, the most natural setting is the family/home; in adolescence, it is more based on peer interaction. The ecological process of neurorehabililitation occurs by enriching the environment (the pati ent’s context) in a more natural manner. The aim is to promote positive changes in the neuronal networks (the biological) and in the quality of life of each child (the individual self).
