"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"
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"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"
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Positive and coordinated neuro-rehab interventions for children and young people is proven to bring health improvements; improve independence; reduces the need for sheltered living; decreases vulnerability; decreases drop-out rates in schools; decreases youth offending"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to prioritise in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
