There are many possible causes of CP, and though the damage may be sustained prenatally, perinatally, or postnatally, prenatal damage is most common (Reddihough & Collins, 2003). A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is an ABI caused by trauma such as a blow to the head, an impact with a blunt object, or penetration by a sharp object. , 1995). , 2007), although for children this may be as a pedestrian or cyclist rather than passenger (Murdoch & Theodoros, 2001). There are two main types of TBI: open, where the skull is penetrated; and closed, where the meninges remain intact.
