Acquired brain injury (ABI) is one of the most common causes of mortality and severe disability in children and adolescents. Those with ABI may suffer any of a wide range of disorders that may limit their activity, their participation in family and school life, and their involvement in society in general. This paper describes the different stages of recovery - hospitalisation, preparing for discharge, and long term follow-up, in which PRM specialists are involved. Although the involvement of the PRM specialist is important in all three stages, it is during the latter two stages when his or her expertise is particularly important. An interdisciplinary care team – which the PRM specialist is well placed to lead ‑ is required if the best results are to be achieved.
