The EDT Study Morning 2021

We are inviting everyone join us for our virtual study morning, where we are hosting a panel of amazing professional experts and discussing how we can proactively help and support children and families with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) after Encephalitis. 


This event is aimed at everyone involved with the care of a child post Encephalitis and Acquired Brain Injury:

Parents & families, Medical, rehab and educational professionals.

When is the study morning?

Thursday 6th May 2021, between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

What will it consist of?

This year our study morning will be taking place via webinar. As it has always been in previous years, the morning promises to be an incredibly informative and worthwhile experience for all those who attend, and will cover many topics relating to ABI and life after Encephalitis, discussing how we can proactively help and support children and families. For instance:

  • Support 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
