BIRT was well represented at the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) Mid-Year Meeting and Conference of the Neuropsychological Rehabilitation Special Interest Group of the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation, held in Australia at the beginning of July. Dr Sara da Silva Ramos, the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust's (BIRT) Research Fellow, Dr Andrew James (Daniel Yorath House), and Dr Brian O’Neill (Graham Anderson House) made presentations covering assessment and intervention in neurorehabilitation, including a report on a new occupational therapy tool, the use of technology to scaffold performance and support learning of activities of daily living, and mental rehearsal to enhance goal achievement.

BIRT’s contributions were well received, and the two events presented an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and share good practice with the World’s experts in the field.
