An 18 month old suffers an anoxic brain injury. He is now 5 and starting to make significant strides. What should I expect and how can I help him?

Hi, and welcome to EmpowHer! Thanks so much for writing.

I'm so glad that this boy is making significant strides! How wonderful!

What did doctors tell you at the time of his brain injury?

What sort of strides is he making, can you give us some details?

Is he in any sort of physical or mental therapy?

Please give us some more information. I would love to send your question to one of the expert doctors on our medical board when you do. And in the meantime, maybe others who have dealt with this situation will write about their experiences.
