Stroke Research

Although childhood stroke is rare, more than half of children who suffer a stroke will develop lifelong cognitive or motor disability and up to one-third will have another stroke. Causes of childhood stroke are drastically different than the causes of stroke in adults, yet current recommendations for stroke in children are often based on adult stroke studies.  

Investigators at Nationwide Children work to characterize the social and cognitive impairments that result from stroke in children and document patients’ full recovery following a stroke.
