Understanding the needs of children and young people (CYP) with acquired brain injuries (ABI) isessential in delivering pathways of care and providing effective rehabilitation.
Aim: To identify relevant literature and key themes relating to the nature and extent of needs (met,unmet or unrecognized) of CYP with ABI and their families.
Method: Scoping review. Sixteen electronic bibliographic databases were searched using terms relating tochildren, brain injury and need. Papers were screened against eligibility criteria by two independentreviewers. No date limits were applied. Data were extracted by the lead author regarding the needs ofCYP with ABI and their families and thematic analysis conducted to identify the key themes. Methodologicalquality was not assessed.
Results: A total of 28 articles were identified including three systematic reviews, one scoping review,two practice recommendation articles, and 22 original research studies. Participants included CYP withABI, parents, siblings, and professionals. Four key themes were identified; CYP-related impairment needs,support needs, return to school and long-term aftercare.
Conclusion: CYP with ABI and their families report extensive needs, many of which are often unmet orunrecognized by those supporting the CYP. Needs transcend the health, social care, and education domains.
