The Child Brain Injury Trust are pleased to be able to offer our Workshop without charge, due to the funding kindly received from the Eden Dora Trust for Children with Encephalitis. Without this funding, these much needed workshops would not take place, and we are therefore grateful for their support.
The Child Brain Injury Trust’s popular ‘Understanding Childhood Acquired Brain Injury’ Workshop is ideal for any professional wanting to know more about childhood acquired brain injury (ABI).
During the current pandemic we are unable to provide the ‘Understanding Childhood Acquired Brain Injury’ Workshop or any face-to-face training, therefore we have developed an innovative and engaging e-learning workshop based on our all day ‘Understanding Childhood Acquired Brain Injury’ Workshop, with some superb interactive tasks that you can download prior to accessing the e-learning session.
Children spend approximately 30 hours per week in school, which is a huge portion of their lives. This is why school is probably one of the most influential elements of a child’s rehabilitation following an ABI.
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. There is however very little awareness or understanding of ABI, which is not covered by any basic teacher training, even for Special Educational Needs (SEN) Staff.
The Child Brain Injury Trust’s training on childhood acquired brain injury aims to fill this gap in knowledge. The e-learning workshop provides a no-nonsense, jargon free approach to childhood acquired brain injury with interactive mind-boggle activities you can try out before launching the e-learning session.
“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” – Dr Adam Kuczynski (Consultant Paediatric Neuropsychologist/ Neuropsychology Lead) Great Ormond Street Hospital.
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?
