"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"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"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"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"
"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"
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
