Cerebra fund research at the Cerebra Centre for Neurological Disorders (CCND), which has led to the production of several new guides for parents.
Three new guides have been produced:
Pain in children with severe intellectual disability: A Guide for parents
This guide explains the possible causes of pain in children with intellectual disability, presents information about how pain may be shown by children who are unable to say that they are in pain and discusses the effects that untreated pain can have on the child.
The arrest and detention of disabled children: A Guide for Parents
This guide aims to provide parents with information about what is involved if their child comes into contact with the police, and what their rights are. It also gives details of useful organisations and resources which can provide further help and support.
Supporting disabled children and young people who are victims of or witnesses to crime
This guide is to support children with a neurological condition who have been either been a witness to or a victim of a crime, and provides information about the impact of the crime, the support available and the child’s rights.
