Summary of "Factors associated with gains in performance during rehabilitation following pediatric brain injury: growth curve analysis."

Predicting recovery of functional performance within pediatric rehabilitation following brain injury is important for health professionals and families, but information regarding factors associated with change in functional skills ('what the child can do') and functional independence ('what the child does') is limited. This study examined change in functional skills and independence over time in children with moderate-severe brain injury during prolonged inpatient rehabilitation.
