Don’t Judge A Book by its Cover

All day
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. 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? The Child Brain Injury Trust learning workshop ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ looks at:
• What is an acquired brain injury?
• Introduction to childhood acquired brain injury
• What to look for? Areas of difficulty
• Debunking myths
• Supporting a child with a brain injury
• Support strategies
• Active participation tasks
• Learning strategies
• Understanding acquired childhood brain injury
