The development of executive skills through late childhood and early adolescence is plotted and progress in these skills is interpreted with reference to current neurological and cognitive theory.
SOCIAL: an integrative framework for the development of social skills.
A developmental biopsychosocial model (SOCIAL) is offered that incorporates the biological underpinnings and socio-cognitive skills that underlie social function, as well as the internal and external factors that mediate these skills.

Clinical validity was supported through significant between-group comparisons, especially between the frontal focal lesion group and other groups, and a dissociation was found between behavioral and cognitive impairments in the frontal as opposed to PKU and hydrocephalus groups.

Do children really recover better? Neurobehavioural plasticity after early brain insult.

It is concluded that neither plasticity nor vulnerability theories are able to explain the range of functional outcomes from early brain insult, and where a child's outcome falls along a 'recovery continuum' depends on injury factors and environmental influences.

A clinical management model focused on both evaluation and intervention from the time of injury through recovery is proposed, with primary value in its potential to speed recovery, minimize distress during the recovery process, and reduce the number of individuals who subjectively experience longer lasting postconcussive problems.
Can we manage sport related concussion in children the same as in adults?

There are a number of important anatomical, physiological, and behavioural differences between adults and children that suggest that adult guidelines will need to be either modified or rewritten to manage injuries in this age group.
Functional Plasticity or Vulnerability After Early Brain Injury?

Findings support a “double-hazard” model for severe and early brain insults and add to the ongoing debate regarding cerebral plasticity, suggesting that, contrary to traditional views, young children who sustain severe TBI in early childhood or moderate or severe T BI in infancy may be particularly vulnerable to significant residual cognitive impairment.
Outcome and predictors of functional recovery 5 years following pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Children who sustain a severe TBI in early childhood are at greatest risk of long- term impairment in day-to-day skills in the long-term postinjury.

Children with more severe injuries and lower preinjury adaptive abilities, and whose families are coping poorly, are at greatest risk of long-term impairment in day-to-day skills, even several years postinjury.
