Introducing our new e-learning and webinar programme

The Child Brain Injury Trust are excited to let you know the details of a new learning service we’ll be launching in September 2014, to further help and support families and professionals through better knowledge and understanding of childhood acquired brain injury (ABI).

We know it’s not always convenient for families and professionals to attend physical learning events, so are launching a system that brings the learning to you- through your computer, tablet or smartphone. Our ‘webinars’- online interactive presentations have been designed to give you more information about topics we know you want to know more about, or that will help you cope better. Don’t panic – your face won’t be on the screen and other participants will not know you are there unless you want them to know – you don’t have to say anything, all you need to do if you want is listen and learn more more about ABI.

You won’t need any special software to be able to participate, but you will need to register on our Learning System and once you are registered you can use this to book onto any of our Learning Events, such as the Annual Conference. If you cannot make the live session, the Webinars will be recorded and be available for 3 months after the initial session.

We will be sending out further details in September, via email, so please make sure we have your email address by emailing:info@cbituk.org and saying you would like more information about the webinars.

Topics being covered in our new webinar service include:

  • Understanding childhood ABI – what it is, manifestations and potential difficulties
  • Strategies for Support in School
  • Supporting siblings
  • Teenage social skills
  • Adolescence, Puberty and te added impact of ABI
  • Impact of ABI On the Maturing Brain
  • Self-care and Stress Management for Parents
  • Lost in Transition- the impact of various transition types and points
  • Welfare Benefits – what can be claimed and how can I claim it
  • To wear or not to wear – cycle helmets
  • ABI and links to youth offending.

 

This initiative has been possible thanks to a grant from Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
