Description

Managing Communication & Feeding Difficulties after Childhood Brain Injury

This study day is an exciting opportunity for all healthcare professionals to learn about and discuss the assessment and management of acquired communication and feeding difficulties after childhood brain injury. The morning will focus on the theory and evidence based practice when working with this population. We will present real life case studies and highlight the work carried out at The Royal London Children’s Hospital by the Speech and Language Therapy Team. The afternoon session will focus on practical application of how to approach aims and interventions when children go home from hospital through informal workshops. We will also facilitate open discussions on how speech , language and/or swallowing goals can be integrated into multi-disciplinary team working at home, in schools and the wider community.
