3 years ago my son was hit by a car and suffered a TBI he was 11 and a talented Triathlete.
Amongst his injuries he had a severe bleed to the brain and brain stem.
3 years later he is unable to speak, has delayed processing speed and high tone all down his right side leading to severe gait.
Emotionally he struggles as his once close friends have deserted him. My wife and I find his low mood the hardest thing to bear he seems to have lost all interest in life.
He has had counselling but I feel a support group would help him make friends. We have tried to go along to other disability groups but find that his brain injury doesn’t really fit in with either physical disabilities or intellectual disabilities and do don’t find these helpful.
Can anyone suggest any groups (preferably down south in Hampshire) for him to mix with children with similar injuries / disabilities?
Also a support group for parents and siblings would help the rest of the family.
