A New Type of ADHD? Head Injuries in Children Linked to Long-Term Attention Problems Children who suffer an injury to the brain, even a minor one, are more likely to experience attention issues, according to a recent study. Researchers looked at children, ages 6 to 13, who suffered from traumatic brain injuries ranging from a concussion to losing consciousness. They found that those with TBI had more lapses in attention and issues, such as anxiety, a tendency to internalize their problems and slower processing speed. (The Washington Post, 8/3)
