Before we start this course, we will first look at what is covered during the training. The course is divided into categories and within each category, you will find several videos. You can pause and watch again any of the videos on in the course. We update our courses regularly and you will be able to see any replacements and also any new videos as they are released. This may be an online course, but if you have any questions during the course, you can contact us by phone, email, or use our online chat facility on any of our websites. You will work through the course videos in order. And now we will give you an overview of what is contained in the course. In the first section, we will look at brain injuries. This includes an introduction to the brain, stages of brain injury, strokes, concussion and prevention. The next section looks at the effects of a brain injury, where we look at the facts about the brain, extreme short-term memory loss, mobile and communication difficulties, left-side neglect, and behaviour that challenges. In the final section, we look at rehabilitation and treatment. This looks at the long-term treatments as well as the need for early intervention.

We also look at how to support someone with a brain injury and how dogs can be used to help people rehabilitate after brain injury with a successful program called Brainy Dogs by Headway Suffolk.
