Introduction. Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects a large percentage of children population; it is an etiologic factor of damage, which is considered without major repercussion in neuropsychological functioning of memory, attention and, language. Sometimes, when children who have suffered TBI are medically stable, they are discharged; however, as it is presented in this research, children would not recover 100% of their premorbid skills. Method. For this study, it was worked with a longitudinal design of repeated measures in a sample of 30 children between 6 and 10 years of age (Mage = 8.53, SD = 1.45), who had suffered a TBI and were assisted in a pediatric hospital from Quito-Ecuador. Neuropsi battery, WISC-IV, and, TAR were used as neuropsychological assessments to obtain measures for memory, attention, and language, plus three clinical assessment scales that were designed as part of this study. Results. Statistically significant differences were found in indicators that assessed memory, attention, and language in different moments of measurement. Conclusions. These data suggest that children improved in some of the neuropsychological areas, however, according to clinical referential criteria, in many of them it was not successfully completed. On the other hand, deferred observation scales suggest that parents perceive their children did not achieve a complete recovery after the TBI. Finally, we reflect on the need to provide adequate neuropsychological monitoring, in order to help children suffering from this type of TBI to recover to the highest possible level.
