A new handbook for teenagers living with brain injury has been launched by The Children’s Trust. Me and My Brain gives advice and guidance on topics such as independence, bullying, driving and education. It also includes real life experiences of young people living with the condition. Created by The Children’s Trust’s team of medical professionals and teenagers affected by brain injury, Me and My Brain helps explain the lifelong condition, providing tips and strategies on some of the challenges such as fatigue and memory loss.
The resource is recommended for family members, teachers and carers, emphasising brain injury as a hidden disability, which can be very difficult for those affected to explain.
