The event was aimed at everyone involved with the care of a child post Encephalitis and Acquired Brain Injury, including parents, carers, families, medical, rehab and educational professionals. As it has always been in previous years, the morning was an incredibly worthwhile experience for all those who attended, and covered many topics relating to ABI and life after Encephalitis, discussing how we can proactively help and support children and families. For instance:

  • Supporting children and young people after discharge from hospital
  • Returning to education post Encephalitis and ABI
  • Sleep-wake disorders following ABI, including a review of the prevalence and phenotypes, and their associations with injury characteristics, impact on recovery, strategies for treatment and ideas for future research
  • A child’s world after Encephalitis and ABI.

Our speakers on the day included:

  • Dr Emily Bennett (Consultant Clinical Psychologist)
  • Dr Emily Talbot (Consultant Clinical Psychologist)
  • Dr Heather Elphick (Consultant in Paediatric Respiratory and Sleep Medicine)
  • Beth Wicks (Education consultant and chair of IPBIS)
