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.
"Healthy teens are better at identifying strategies to deal with barriers. KIDS WITH ABI'S CAN'T!"
"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"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"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"
"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."
"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."
"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"
"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"
