Helping the young stroke victim



Helping the young stroke victim



Journal of School Health 55(7): 281-282



Cerebrovascular accidents, or strokes, are a major source of disability; some 500,000 new cases are diagnosed annually. Though the number of young stroke victims is small, the cost in medical expenses and human suffering can be staggering. Causes of stroke are explained and information concerning survival rates, recovery, and rehabilitation is presented. Contributions to the integration and acceptance of the young stroke survivor by administrators, counselors, students, teachers, and school nurses are examined.
