Every year in the UK more than 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness. For these children and their parents, even the smallest milestones made in intensive rehabilitation can lead to huge moments of increased independence.

Treatment and recovery from brain injury can be entirely different from child to child as the range of difficulties experienced can vary vastly. All of these children require specialist rehabilitation, equipment and fun to help them regain their mobility and independence, but its hard work. It can be slow progress and exhausting.

Ahead of ‘Action for Brain Injury Week’ (Monday, 20th May – Sunday 26thMay), The Children’s Trust is highlighting the tiny massive moments made in rehabilitation.

Aston spoke to ccupational therapist, Sharon Tuppeny to discuss how important ‘tiny massive moments’ are for children recovering from brain injuries and their parents.
