"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"
"Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation cannot be delivered in isolation. The needs of the child have to be looked at both holistically and within the context of the family unit. Parents need to be empowered to be parents in post-acute pediatric neuro-rehabilitation following 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"
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"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"
"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"
"Parent-supported interventions after paediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
