In the past financial year, we have continued to deliver ‘understanding Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)’ training sessions.
These sessions are aimed at those working with people with an ABI, to improve their understanding.
The training includes an overview of ABI, the common challenges after ABI and offers some helpful tips for support. These are small sessions which are designed to be interactive in nature to allow for discussion and assist with building greater understanding. Most importantly these sessions also included a Q&A with a person with lived experience which has always been well received.
In total over the last financial year we conducted six training sessions. Three of these have been run onsite in our city hub and three were out in the community (Nuriootpa, Mount Barker and Davern Park). As a part of our service development, we always ensure to seek feedback and overall, the feedback has been positive with an average rating of 4.7/5.
