Statewide ABI Paediatric Service

The Statewide ABI Paediatric Service assists people working and living with children and young people with Acquired Brain Injury. The services offered include; provision of information, training, mentoring, support, resources and community liaison/development.

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is often unexpected and brings unfamiliar challenges for a child, young person and their family. Our Statewide ABI Paediatric Consultants is the only ABI Paediatric Specialist Service in Victoria.

The Service assists people living and working with children and young people with an ABI. A child or young person may acquire a brain injury from a number of causes including:

  • Brain tumour
  • Stroke
  • Encephalitis/meningitis
  • Hypoxia (lack of oxygen) e.g. near drowning
  • Fall or sporting injury.

We can offer you:

  • Support for your family to better understand the impact of your child’s ABI
  • Support and training for your child’s school or other services
  • Information and resources
  • Support Coordination
  • ABI training for groups and schools.

This support can be for you if you have a child aged 4-18 years with an ABI – or you support or work with a child or young person with an ABI – and you have funds in your NDIS plan.

How can I access this support?

This support can be for you if you have funds in your NDIS plan, or in your Department of Health and Human Services Individualised Support Plan.
