The closing date for the submission of applications has now passed and we have shortlisted candidates for interview. Watch this space for the introduction the successful candidate. Who will become our second Family Support Worker to assist families affected by childhood brain injury in the Tees Valley area?
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
"Poor parenting styles affects children's behavior; increased their learning disability; and had a negative impact on emotions; anxiety; anger management post brain injury"
"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"
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"Parent-supported interventions following pediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"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."
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"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"
"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"
