Claire Galloway, author of A Call to Mind, talks with Houston Style Magazine about her experience with her son’s TBI.

What can’t be easily seen by doctors and teachers is too often dismissed. The signs of a TBI might not be the “obvious” ones that physicians look for during an exam. They might look like social issues, laziness, or manipulation. Or they may look like some other problem depending on a specialist’s area of expertise. (Consider the adage “When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”) Galloway says parental observations of unexpected changes in the ability of a child should be given far more credence than they currently are.
