Over the next few weeks we will be adding to this page so please keep checking for updates.
There are a number of Apps that NHS specialists and patients have selected that have aided recovery and rehabilitation.
We also have experience of using some of these apps to help to improve brain functioning post-injury and have seen the difference they can make.
The website contains fun Apps that focus on:
Eating and drinking
Skills * Motor skills * Thinking skills * Communication Skills
You can find out more about this fantastic resource at:
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab centres. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"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"
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury. Stressful experiences alter brain development of a child, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to priorities in pediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
"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."
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we delivery neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
