Attend the event

On Thursday 1 October between 10am and 11am, join Alison Fletcher and Susie Aspinal , Professional Leads from our Brain Injury Community Service as we look at the key considerations when supporting a child or young person with an acquired brain injury in the community.


This will include:

  • hidden disability, unmet/unrecognised needs
  • concussion/mild TBI
  • stages of transition
  • impact on participation
  • return to activity
  • case study examples


This session will help to support you in maximising a child’s participation, understanding the impact of early intervention and supporting a change in the child’s trajectory, as well as providing some understanding of the impact of recognising a child’s unmet needs, vs. the impact of these needs not being recognised.


This session is aimed at health, education and social care teams supporting children in the community.
