This session will highlight recent research findings focused on gaps in care and service for children with TBI with a specific focus on improving understanding of how pediatric TBI impacts educational, social, and broad participation-level outcomes. We will also discuss insights that can be gained by using a mix-methods approach that includes pediatric TBI stakeholders including family/caregivers, care providers, and teachers. This discussion will then tie this work to recent pediatric TBI practice recommendations including those provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and discuss ways to continue to move pediatric TBI research and clinical practice forward.
