Course Structure

This online course is broken down into 3 bite-sized units with the following titles;

Unit 1: An Introduction to the Brain and Acquired Brain Injury

Describes the six main areas of the brain and explores the functions of each one. Learners will find out what is meant by acquired brain injuries (ABIs) and some of the possible causes. This unit concludes by looking at how an acquired brain injury can affect people, depending on which part of the brain has suffered damage.

Unit 2: The Effects of Acquired Brain Injuries

Examines the ways in which an acquired brain injury can impact on a person’s life, and on their families and friends. The unit looks at the effects under five category headings:

  • loss or bereavement
  • cognitive
  • communication
  • emotional and behavioural
  • physical.

This unit provides information about the wide range of difficulties that might arise, depending on the severity of the damage to the brain and the location of the injury.

Unit 3: Providing Support

This unit helps learners to put the right support and rehabilitation in place for someone with an ABI, in order to meet their specific needs. Learners look at techniques for managing a person’s challenging behaviour and for helping them to cope with everyday tasks. Information is provided about the different roles that therapists can play in a person’s rehabilitation. The unit concludes by presenting a short case study to learners, followed by some questions for them to answer.
