New study: Kids recovery from concussion

eight_col_80790930_s

Thirty percent of concussions are suffered by children, but the only international guidelines for recovery currently in existence are for adults.  Professor Nicola Starkey from the School of Psychology at Waikato University talks to Lynn Freeman about her new research into how best children and adolescents can recover from concussion.   Nicola has been awarded $1.1m by the Health Research Council to conduct a study with 600 children and adolescents aged 5-17 years from across the Auckland and Waikato regions.

FROM DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT (1988 – 2003+)

“Here was a light behind the despair, beyond the darkness. At first a flicker of an ember, just a tiny pin-prick of dawning possibilities…

“I can’t do much about all the suffering in the world, BUT all I CAN do is perhaps add a little touch of creativity, hope, ‘beauty and magic’, that I hope may uplift and encourage others…even if it’s just ONE person.”
