#Sunday School Brain Term to Learn

This involves a term that we dedicate to learning more about each week related to the brain, brain injury or a neurological condition.

This is designed to help us here at Headway Derby to learn new terminology, but also to help spread awareness to others too. We post these on our social media in order to spread awareness. We are all on a journey of learning together.
