What are Acquired Brain Injuries?

Acquired brain injuries occur after accidents or illnesses and can cause difficulties similar to neurodiversity such as dyslexia or ADHD. This might be the result of a stroke, a tumour, head injury or surgery.

It depends which bit of the brain is affected, but we regularly see clients who need work focused support with:

  • Memory
  • Organisation
  • Time management
  • Concentration
  • Communication
  • Planning and Prioritising

The brain is a wonderful thing and even when some parts have been damaged, we can find a work around.  By learning to rely on the areas not affected by the injury, our clients develop strategies to compensate for their new difficulties.  This may take time to bed in, but our end goal is always to ensure that we are getting the most we can from the strengths we have.
