"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"
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate 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"
"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"
"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"
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
