SEN and Disabilities Seminar Series 2023/24

Presented by Dr Emily Bennett and Dr Emily Talbot, Paediatric Neuropsychology Service, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

It is estimated that, by the time they leave school, the equivalent of one child per class will have experienced a brain injury of some kind. This seminar will raise awareness of the impact an acquired brain injury (ABI) on the child’s learning and cognition. It will emphasise the significance of an injury in childhood across a child’s development and time within education. Practical strategies for support will be discussed and consideration given to how educators can access further information and advice about ABI, both on a local and national level.
