The rehabilitation service provides holistic, intensive support for children and young people who have sustained a brain injury (either through accident or illness); have undergone neurosurgery or for those who need help to regain or improve skills.
We provide children and young people with the highest standard of care and treatment, working towards bringing back lost skills, encouraging alternative skills as well as preventing other problems that may develop during the recovery.
We focus on making sure both the child and the family are greatly supported through the process, to ensure that the child can comfortably return to their family.
Children and young people are supported by a highly skilled, dedicated team of professionals, with assessment and rehabilitation support workers providing day-to-day care.
The team is in constant contact with the child and provide vital assessment and rehabilitation by recording observations and therapies.
A tailored development plan is created for each child that includes the aims and goals of rehabilitation which are discussed and updated weekly. Families are regularly updated with progress throughout the rehabilitation period.
The rehabilitation services may include supporting the child as they are introduced back into full-time education and involve one or more therapists working with the school and local therapists.
As part of this, we offer follow-up support with the Outreach Practitioner which includes a one year follow-up. The treatment programme aims to improve the following:
- Physical function
- Oro-motor and feeding skills
- Activities of daily living
- Cognitive function
- Vocational skills
- Community access
- Self-esteem and emotional adjustment
Wherever possible, the child or young person is encouraged to get involved in everyday activities such as getting dressed, playing and washing up.
