'ABI Return: Guiding the Return to Education' Booklet

We are proud to have helped fund and worked collaboratively to produce, a brilliant new resource from the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) and the National ABI Education and Learning Syndicate (N-ABLES)

Launched on 13th May 2021, the booklet is free-to-access and will help professionals involved in supporting children and young people with an Acquired Brain Injury to prepare for, and achieve, a successful return to education and to help progress their recovery.

N-ABLES was set up as a result of the recommendations made in the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Acquired Brain Injury’s recently-published Time for Change report, and we are very proud to be part of the steering group since its conception. The group works to identify ways to support all education professionals in gaining a minimum level of awareness and understanding about Acquired Brain Injury and the educational requirements of children and young people with this condition. To find out more about N-ABLES, please read more on the UKABIF website here.

The Eden Dora Trust are thrilled to be an active member of the N-ABLES group, which also includes Dr Emily Bennett, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust; Dr Gemma Costello, Specialist Educational Psychologist in Paediatric Neuropsychology; Baroness Morris of Yardley; Professor Nathan Hughes, Professorial Research Fellow at Sheffield University, Gill Robinson OBE, CEO, Interaction and Communication Academy Trust, Vice Chair of the Teaching Schools Council, National Leader of Education; Lisa Turan, CEO of the Child Brain Injury Trust, and Chloe Hayward, Executive Director of UKABIF.
