Traumatic Brain Injury Free Toolkit

A blow or jolt to the head of a child can seem harmless at the time, but it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms that there is an injury to the brain. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain function. A TBI may range from “mild” to “severe.”

Research shows that parents of a child who has a TBI need to have long-term support in creating an environment of warm parental responsiveness that promotes behavior regulation within the child. The Missouri Adult Brain Injury Program has collaborated with other agencies (DMH) to disseminate a link to the program’s Early Childhood Toolkit, which provides education to both childcare providers/educators and parents/families about signs, symptoms of TBI and strategies for prevention.
