Brilliant news! MATRIX Neurological has recently received a £1,000 donation from The Stewarts Law Foundation, a charitable foundation established by the partners of Stewarts Law firm of solicitors.
This was quite unexpected and will greatly help the charity to carry out its aims to support children, young people and their families who are living with the effects of an acquired brain injury.
"Parent-supported interventions after paediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
"Participation in teen sports and normal activities leads to improved quality of life for children and young people post brain injury and helps to maximise outcomes"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and have conflicting priorities"
"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"
