Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy 2019: Current Understanding and Knowledge Gaps
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease diagnosed neuropathologically in individuals with a history of exposure to repetitive head impacts (RHI). CTE has received increased attention due to a growing number of deceased former NFL players being diagnosed with the disease postmortem. CTE can only be diagnosed by neuropathological examination. However, provisional clinical research diagnostic criteria have been proposed and studies are underway to develop neuroimaging and fluid biomarkers diagnose CTE during life. This symposium will provide an overview of what is currently known about CTE, as well critical knowledge gaps and current and future directions in research.

At school, children apply cognitive skills to learning; however, the relationship of cognitive intervention to learning at school has not been fully explored. This talk will present the early viewpoint of pediatric cognitive rehabilitation and the evolution over time. The view of cognitive rehabilitation related to child development, service delivery, and the effects of TBI on school performance will be offered.
