Abstract

Children with acquired brain injury encounter problems both in terms of academic attainment and in other aspects of their lives in relation to social, behavioural and independent life skills. Many previous rehabilitation programmes for these children have been inappropriately adapted versions of adult models but there has often not been a recognition that successful current adult models of vocational rehabilitation can translate to educational rehabilitation models for children and adolescents. This article considers the historical basis of provision for these children in the UK and describes the development of a new programme of education as rehabilitation.
