In this article we report the results of a small-scale pilot study into the self-reported problems of children with brain injuries and the unmet needs of their families two to four years following rehabilitation in a rehabilitation centre. Parents reported a lot of ongoing problems in their children as well as unmet family needs. It is concluded that long-term follow-up programs, like the PABICOP program, founded by dr. Jane Gillett are necessary to detect and meet the needs of these children and families.
