Further Details

The Brain Injury Community Team is run by The Children's Trust, Tadworth, providing specialist assessment and community support to school age children with acquired brain injury. The Team helps brain injured children and young people overcome the specific challenges they face around cognition, communication and behaviour and gives them the best opportunity to succed in school and college.

The Team supports the network around a child or young person (their family, sibling and school) and helps them understand the deficits assoicated with brain injury and how to manage these in real life settings. Using appropriate coping and learning strategies, they become empowered to help maximise the brain injured child's full potential and therefore his or her chances of success.
