Rehabilitation Services and Long-Term Discharge Planning for Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome (FIRES) Patients: A Single Institution Review - Kimberly Davis, PhD
Short Summary: Febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES) has a devastating clinical presentation characterized by refractory status epilepticus without a clear structural, toxic, or metabolic cause. Though FIRES can occur at any age, pediatric populations tend to be primarily affected, with most cases occurring in school-age children. FIRES is difficult to diagnose and presents a significant challenge for clinicians with respect to treatment and seizure control. It is associated with a poor prognosis, with up to 30% of cases resulting in death. Most surviving cases present with refractory epilepsy and severe neurological sequelae, especially with younger age of onset.

Sensory Stimulation for Children and Youth with Disorders of Consciousness: Recommendations from the developing evidence-base - Dr. Wendy L. Magee, PhD and Dr. Valerie Paasch
Short summary:
Disorders of consciousness (DOC) can occur following profound acquired brain injury. Recovery patterns vary widely for this population with some individuals quickly emerging from a DOC and others remaining in this stage for a prolonged amount of time. There is a paucity of evidence-based interventions and assessments for this complex population, as pediatric-specific research is lacking in this area.

Childhood stroke: medical aspects, consequences and implications for interventions - Eli Gunnarson, MD, PhD
Short Summary: Stroke is an acute medical condition and constitutes a clinical syndrome caused by either arterial ischemic, venous thrombotic or hemorrhagic stroke. Childhood stroke is receiving increased attention in the field of acquired brain injury, although there is still much to be learned about the specifics of the condition related to prevention, diagnosis, outcomes and rehabilitation interventions.

Updates on Diagnosis, Prognosis and Treatment of Paediatric Disorders of Consciousness - Erika Molteni, MSc, PhD, FHEA
Short Summary: Disorders of Consciousness (DoC) including coma, vegetative state, and minimally conscious state can occur following acquired brain injury in children. The literature on pediatric DoC is sparse and there are no specific clinical guidelines for behavioral evaluation or treatment of children with DoC.

What is Teen Online Problem Solving and How Can It Help Adolescents with TBI during the COVID-19 Pandemic - Shari Wade, PhD
Short Summary: The Teen Online Problem Solving program (TOPS) adopts a problem-solving framework to address the cognitive, behavioral, and social challenges that adolescents often experience following TBI. This talk includes a brief review of the program and the extensive evidence base; whereas the future pre-conference session will provide much greater detail and some hands-on training, in addition to describing how TOPS has been adapted for use in other countries and cultures.
