Education, Health and Social Care Professionals
We are happy to work in partnership with public sector organisations. Our priority is to provide for the needs of children and young people living with the effects of an acquired brain injury; however we also understand how our work can help you to fulfill your legal responsibilities for children and young people with learning disabilities as a result of an acquired brain injury.

We understand how the complex effects of an ABI can negatively affect the successful re-integration of children and young people back into school. In our experience, the help and support they need is very different from those with well recognised learning disabilities. Our aim is to help children and young people to achieve academically; whilst balancing and managing their very unique support needs.

You can refer a child or young person to us at any time should you consider our services to meet the needs of the individual. Please contact us to arrange a meeting to discuss the individual’s specific needs.
