Over the next few weeks we will be adding to this page so please keep checking for updates.
There are a number of Apps that NHS specialists and patients have selected that have aided recovery and rehabilitation.
We also have experience of using some of these apps to help to improve brain functioning post-injury and have seen the difference they can make.
The website contains fun Apps that focus on:
Eating and drinking
Skills * Motor skills * Thinking skills * Communication Skills
You can find out more about this fantastic resource at:
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and highlight needs and conflicting priorities"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab centres. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we delivery neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation cannot be delivered in isolation. The needs of the child have to be looked at both holistically and within the context of the family unit. Parents need to be empowered to be parents in post-acute pediatric neuro-rehabilitation following brain injury"
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury. Stressful experiences alter brain development of a child, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
