Abstract

With increasing numbers of surviving head injured children and adolescents, there is a growing need to provide child neuropsychiatric services as a necessary component for their comprehensive rehabilitation. This paper discusses the critical role child psychiatry should have in pediatric head injury rehabilitation and outlines a framework for neuropsychiatric interventions including the use of neuropsychoactive medications. Case examples highlight the principles and practicalities of interventions.
