Education, Health and Social Care Professionals
We are happy to work in partnership with public sector organisations. Our priority is to provide for the needs of children and young people living with the effects of an acquired brain injury; however we also understand how our work can help you to fulfill your legal responsibilities for children and young people with learning disabilities as a result of an acquired brain injury.
We understand how the complex effects of an ABI can negatively affect the successful re-integration of children and young people back into school. In our experience, the help and support they need is very different from those with well recognised learning disabilities. Our aim is to help children and young people to achieve academically; whilst balancing and managing their very unique support needs.
You can refer a child or young person to us at any time should you consider our services to meet the needs of the individual. Please contact us to arrange a meeting to discuss the individual’s specific needs.
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"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"
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"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."
"Different 'experts' involved in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
"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"
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"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"
