Cognitive deficits are common sequelae of cranio-encephalic traumas and significantly impact on outcome and re-entry into school, work and community. During childhood and adolescence neuropsychological disorders have peculiar dynamic features. The main cognitive deficits of TBI child and adolescent patients are discussed throughout the various recovery stages as assessed by Rancho Los Amigos (RLA).
