Birth Injury & Cognitive Developmental Delays
When a child suffers a brain injury at birth it may not manifest itself until months or years later. Cognitive delays due to a brain injury can affect the intellectual functioning of a child and cause learning difficulties as well as awareness issues. There are a number of different cognitive symptoms of a brain injury so it is important to let your child’s medical provider know if your child shows signs of cognitive developmental delays. A doctor is the only one who can diagnose a birth injury. If your child has received a birth injury-related diagnosis, please call us. We’re here for you.
Cognitive Developmental Delay Symptoms of Birth Injuries
In some cases, it may take months, or even longer, to identify symptoms of a brain injury from birth. Cognitive issues and developmental delays may not appear until years after birth. Parents and others close to the child may start to notice issues like:
- Difficulty remembering and processing information
- Behavioral problems
- Trouble controlling impulses
- Struggling to regulate emotions
- Difficulty communicating and playing with others
- Learning disabilities
This list is not exhaustive. If you have concerns about your child showing symptoms of cognitive developmental delays you should consult a doctor. Only a doctor can accurately diagnose a birth injury.
