Study summary: This longitudinal, age-matched case-control study of children with and without TBI aims to: 1)examine the recovery trajectory of children across the full spectrum of TBI, focusing on behavior, emotion, executive and cognitive function, and quality of life over the 6-year period following TBI; 2) determine the behavioral and emotional adjustment, executive and cognitive functioning, social competence and community participation of children at 6-years post- TBI compared to an age, gender and ethnicity matched comparison group of TBI-free children; and 3) identify factors associated with poor 6-year outcomes following childhood TBI.
