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:
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"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"
"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"
"Positive and coordinated neuro-rehab interventions for children and young people is prove to bring health improvements; improve independence; a decline in the need for sheltered living; decreases vulnerability; decreases drop-out rates in schools; decreases youth offending"
"Different 'experts' involved in pediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
"Families and professionals spend time focusing on the negative aspects of ABI. Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"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"
"Participation in teen sports and normal activities leads to improved quality of life for children and young people post brain injury and helps to maximise outcomes"
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
