3 Year Old Attacked by Dog

Your heart breaks when you see headlines like that in the news, but even more so if that headline is about your very own precious child.

JackJacksJourney.com was designed to tell the story of Jack Carson Dennis who, at age 3 1/2 years old, sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) after a severe dog attack. This website will provide you and your family with resources from a diverse group of professionals who helped Jack throughout his Journey.

You will learn about the injustice Jack had to overcome by the hands of a Texas public school system. Their lack of initiation and support cost Jack precious time and prevented him from receiving proper intervention for several years. You will read how Jack’s Journey became a fortuitous journey that offered answers for him and his older brother, Logan. Logan was the only person who witnessed the attack on Jack. Although Jack is only 9 years old, and Logan is 16 years old, you will learn how TBI and PTSD is unique and effects each person differently. There is no walking away unchanged, after experiencing such trauma. Jack and his brother were very young when the attack occurred. It’s unclear if time can be renewed and restored. The brain is a complex organ.

Jack’s young age was problematic in the beginning, but several missed opportunities by the school districts failed Jack from receiving proper support and intervention to minimize the impact from the accident. Those missed opportunities started at the hands of the uninformed medical professionals who treated Jack in the emergency room and again after The Texas Education Agency turned a blind eye while Jack’s local public school system failed to serve him appropriately.

Here you will learn the importance of complete individual evaluations, and how the policies set up to protect children with TBI and Dyslexia need to be addressed and changed. JackJacksJourney.com highlights the broken Texas Education School System and helps bring awareness to Traumatic Brain Injuries in the United States.

Based on information regarding Injury Prevention & Control: Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussion from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website, Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in the United States, contributing to about 30% of all injury deaths.1 Every day, 138 people in the United States die from injuries that include TBI. Those who survive a TBI can face effects lasting a few days to disabilities which may last the rest of their lives. Effects of TBI can include impaired thinking or memory, movement, sensation (e.g., vision or hearing), or emotional functioning (e.g., personality changes, depression). These issues not only affect individuals but can have lasting effects on families and communities.
