Interactive Workshop split over two mornings, exploring the issues facing children, young people and their families, following childhood acquired brain injury.

This workshop will take place online over Zoom. Delegates will need access to a video camera and microphone to be able to fully participate in the Workshop.  (Please note: CPD certificates can not be awarded to any delegate who is unable to have their camera on throughout the course)

Delivered between 9:30 – 12:30 on 19th & 20th January 2022

Children spend approximately 30 hours per week in school- a huge portion of their lives. Therefore school is probably one of the most influential elements of a child’s rehabilitation following an acquired brain injury.

We know that the quality of support and capability of those within the school can have a major impact on the outcomes for a child or young person. Very few educational staff have any awareness or understanding of the issues that a child may face on their return to school, as this is not covered by any basic training, even for Special Educational Needs staff.

The Child Brain Injury Trust’s training on childhood acquired brain injury aims to fill this gap in knowledge. The workshops provide a no-nonsense, jargon free approach to childhood acquired brain injury.

Thos ewho have attended the virtual training have commented so positively about the value and accessability:

“I really enjoyed this training. I loved that it was spread over two mornings as I felt I attended much better to it then instead of being rushed into one day. Louise was great, very informative and gave plenty of opportunities for questions and discussions.”

“I thought the training was one of the most useful ones I’ve ever done!”

“I didn’t expect it to be so interactive but actually this helped to relate the information to my personal experiences and future practice and helped consolidate my learning.”

You may think that you do not have any children with an acquired brain injury in your school — but due to the hidden nature of this disability how can you be sure?
