The term "brain injury" covers a huge variety of conditions. At BIRD, we make no distinction between types of brain injury and aim to treat people of all ages and all levels of severity.
Many people with brain injury are born with the problem due to genetic reasons or complications during pregnancy and birth. Other people suffer trauma during their life from accidents, assaults and natural disorders such as strokes.
The people we treat may be affected by:
Ours is a unique treatment that complements the more traditional methods such as medicine and adapted education. Our ultimate aim is to radically improve the lives of our patients and their carers.
Some of the children we provide treatment for are severely physically and / or mentally disadvantaged and may be blind with little or no head control. Others have only mild learning difficulties, hyperactivity or behavioural disorders and are in mainstream education.
For many of the people we have been able to help - it was thought that no further improvement was possible. Thankfully BIRD can often manage to markedly improve the lives of the great majority of the people who come to us.
