This resource explains what Encephalitis is and directs parents/guardians through the maze of services, from health, social services and education, in order to maximize their child's recovery. The whole family's emotional needs are also acknowledged and addressed.

The book is available in different formats: a PDF copy of the book can be downloaded here and an iBoook version compatible with Macs and iOS devices or via iTunes on your computer can be accessed here. Alternatively please contact the support team for a paper copy version. 


We are extremely grateful to Eden Dora Trust for funding that enabled the Design and Print of this Guide. 

Responding to Challenging Behaviour

Behaviour problems following Encephalitis can be extremely distressing for families and carers. They are usually more problematic because those suffering from them are likely to be excluded from society through their behaviour. This book is written in straightforward, direct style, using practical examples. Originally produced by the Brain Injury Association of Queensland Inc. and printed by The Encephalitis Society in the UK under licence.
