In the case of my younger son, Avi – one example is that, in spite of a 130 I.Q., his visual memory is in the 4th percentile – so he has difficulty reading and writing (he’s 9-1/2, going into 4th grade and reading below the Kindergarten level.)
As a result, children who are lead-poisoned often can benefit from brain injury rehabilitation therapy (just as a child who has been injured in a traumatic accident would benefit) to restore or rebuild their cognitive capacity.
I will update this post periodically with new links that I find.
