'ABI Return: Guiding the Return to Education' Booklet

We are proud to have helped fund 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. 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, Head of Psychosocial Services, The Children’s Trust, Tadworth Court; 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.
