My 19 year old son was assaulted nearly a year ago and suffered a traumatic brain injury. We were told that his chances of survival were slim due to an arterial bleed into his brain. Thank the angels he survived and is with us today. He was due to start university last September but has been unable to go, his whole future has changed. He did manage to complete his college course but lost over a year of memories due to his injury. He did try an apprenticeship, but was unable to process the information that he was given and ended up having a meltdown. He really wants to find employment and earn himself a wage so he can try and get his life back on track. To look at him and listen to him, you would think that there is nothing wrong. He has frontal lobe brain damage that has left him with sporadic short term memory loss and he can be impulsive. He has been put on an antidepressant to help with his low mood and hopefully settle down the erratic electrics in his brain. All he needs is the chance of a little job and earn a wage whilst also boosting his confidence and mood. Help!?
