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.

"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"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"
"Parent-supported interventions following pediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
