Lash and Associates Publishing/Training
A treasure chest of inexpensive resources about children's head injuries for professionals and families.

Brain injured children and adults and many others are being wrongly identified as having learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, emotional problems, etc. Lash & Associates publications and web site, with its "survivor’s stories," etc., can help everyone to identify, understand, and cope with these disabilities. Their resources are inexpensive, easy to understand, and well researched.

One example of a resource that we cherish is a child’s book called Elvin, the Elephant Who Forgets. Elvin has a tree branch fall on his head; he can’t count his figs, he gets mixed up at school and doesn't get along with his friends. A visit to the nueropsychologist helps him understand that he’s not a bad little elephant... he has a brain injury. This paperback book can help children, friends, and classmates understand brain injury.

We salute the vast, inexpensive, and useful resources of Lash & Associates. For your free catalog and one free "Tip Card" (you have the choice of 35 different subjects) see their web site.
