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

Join our accredited workshop to explore the experiences of children, young people, and their families following childhood acquired brain injury.

“I thought the training was really good, genuinely helpful, and interesting. I was coming with very little knowledge, so I look forward to going back over my notes and confirming my learning further over the next few weeks.”

The Child Brain Injury Trust provides a no-nonsense, jargon free learning approach to understanding and appreciating the challenges and barriers faced by children and young people with acquired brain injuries. Through this interactive workshop, you will have the opportunity to experience some mind-boggling challenges, discuss case studies, and find out how best to support children and families affected by childhood acquired brain injury.
