To identify, describe and quantify the cognitive, behavioural and emotional disorders caused by the various brain injuries in children, as well as to find out the capacities preserved in the brain.

To establish a personalised neuropsychological treatment according to the problems presented by the child. The purpose of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation is to reduce the impact of cognitive, behavioural or emotional impairment in the child’s daily life and the impact on their family and school environment.

To advise the family about the nature of neuropsychological impairment, offer them a guide for managing the problem in everyday situations and provide emotional and psychoeducational support.

To intervene in the school. To hold interviews with the teachers to give specific instructions, with an aim to strengthen the child’s learning processes and help them to understand the difficulties he or she has.
