Parents can refer their child or young person at any time if you think that our services would be of value. We would not expect children or young people to refer themselves without the express consent of their parents. We know how important the family is in the recovery and rehabilitation process following an acquired brain injury.
Our service model takes the ‘whole family’ approach and is designed to work closely with parents at all times to ensure they are included in the rehabilitation process and that their views and opinions are taken into consideration, as well as those of the child or young person.
Please contact us to discuss your needs with a member of staff.
"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"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"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"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"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"
"Healthy teens are better at identifying strategies to deal with barriers. KIDS WITH ABI'S CAN'T!"
"New parenting support intervention showed how parenting style is related to executive dysfunction in children and young people post brain injury. With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
