Type of event: Workshops
Byrom Place, 1 Byrom Street
One day interactive Workshop for up to 16 delegates, exploring the issues facing children, young people and their families, following childhood acquired brain injury.
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.
‘The workshop uses a variety of engaging and thought-provoking approaches to raise awareness of the complex issues faced by children with ABI and their families’
