Abstract: The present work deals with a 10-year-old boy, diagnosed with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) with cerebellar hemorrhage secondary to arteriovenous malformation (AVM). He required external vascular drainage and resection of the AVM. Strokes involve acquired brain damage secondary to the occlusion or rupture of a vein or artery. Its appearance is usually abrupt and unexpected, requiring hospitalization. The sequels caused depend on the age, affected area and extent of the same. The patient shows a neuropsychological profile characterized by difficulties in selective, sustained, alternating attention, processing speed and working memory, with a direct impact on academic skills. Deficits are evident in executive functioning and in social perception. Their behavior is impulsive, prone to frustration, low self-esteem, apathy and isolation. He manifests frequent somatic complaints and fatigue, with high dependence for ADL. A multidisciplinary intervention is proposed, with two weekly sessions of 45' for 6 months. The objective is to alleviate or compensate for the deficits found, enhance their strengths and facilitate their maximum independence. It will work through centers of interest and will combine pencil and paper tasks, games and computer (NeuronUp and Power Point). It will advance from the most basic cognitive functions to the most complex, establishing three ascending levels of difficulty. During the first month, it will be complemented with 20' of transcranial, contralesional and low frequency magnetic stimulation. Similarly, psychoeducation and family intervention will be carried out. An improvement in cognitive performance is expected, requiring long-term intervention.
