wrote on the Special Interest Groups: NABLES wall: On 26th March NASEN launched a series of training films for teachers to help provide information, techniques and advice on inclusive teaching strategies for specific SEND conditions. The films were funded by the Department for Education and produced in association with the Centre for Education and Youth (CfEY). The films cover Acquired Brain Injury, ADHD, Autism, Down Syndrome, Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Hearing Impairment, Physical Disability, Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs, Speech, Language and Communication needs and Visual Impairment. The National Acquired Brain Injury in Learning and Education Syndicate (NABLES) are really proud that Acquired Brain Injury is included in the list. NABLES first became aware of the film project in December 2018 and submitted a successful bid. Once the project was confirmed there was a very small window to find a young person and school willing to talk about their experience. Lisa Turan (CEO, The Child Brain Injury Trust), and Dr Emily Bennett, Paediatric Clinical Neuropsychologist from Nottingham Children's Hospital spent the day filming and the whole team spent a lot of time submitting information and amendments to the film. Please have a look at the films here https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/whole-school-send/find-wss-resources/nqt-videos.html

wrote on the Special Interest Groups: NABLES wall: On 2nd March 2020, N-ABLES published an article called 'Acquired brain injury: A Guide for Schools' on the Special Educational Needs and Disability gateway. This is a resource for special education needs coordinators, (SENCOs), teachers and teaching assistants, which provides access to news, training, events, resources and information. The article will also be featured in the National Association of Special Educational Need's Community of Practice e-news. We are really pleased to publish this article on the SEND Gateway on behalf of N-ABLES. The article conveys the issues faced by children and young people with brain injuries and we hope this will encourage SENCos, teachers and teaching assistants to seek more information about ABI. Please click here https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/r/ukabif-acquired-brain-injury-a-guide-for-schools.html to see the published version. A more detailed referenced version is available here https://cdn.ymaws.com/ukabif.org.uk/resource/resmgr/nables/information/n-ables_blog_2_3_2020.pdf

wrote on the Special Interest Groups: NABLES wall: Yesterday evening we received the brilliant news that our proposal to run a round table event at the International Paediatric Brain Injury Symposium (IPBIS) in August has been accepted! The purpose of the roundtable is to bring together professionals, researchers, families and children/young people with an ABI from a range of disciplines and international contexts to review and discuss the Best Practice guidance we are developing which will allowing knowledge and experience from other countries to inform its further development. Exciting times!

wrote on the Special Interest Groups: NABLES wall: Very exciting day for NABLES! Today we attended the National Network of Special Teaching Schools meeting at Swiss Cottage School. Prof Nathan Hughes and Dr Gemma Costello gave a short presentation which looked at the impact of acquired brain injury on education. Many teachers don't have any knowledge or understanding of acquired brain injury resulting in poor attendance, Social adjustment, isolation & relationship issues, exclusion and mental health problems. The talk was very well received and information we provide will be disseminated throughout the network. We then had a meeting with the rest of our colleagues Dr Emily Bennett, Lisa Turan, Petrina Sill and Louise Blakebrough. Such a lot of great work going on!
