We hope that, over time, this area of the website will provide a range of fact sheets to provide a range of information on issues affecting families living with the effect of an acquired brain injury.
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Healthy teens are better at identifying strategies to deal with barriers. KIDS WITH ABI'S CAN'T!"
"Different 'experts' involved in pediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
