About

Mission

Innovating tailored, dynamic cognitive rehabilitation programs within an educational framework for children recovering from acquired brain injury (ABI) in order to maximize their outcomes using a multidisciplinary approach. We recognize that there is inseparable overlap in the medical, mental health, and educational needs in this population.

Vision

Our vision is for children throughout the Bay Area recovering from acute brain injury to have access to array of multidisciplinary cognitive rehab options integrated with educational programs to maximize outcomes. We aim to create a system where recovery is supported after discharge and not dependent on family means. UCSF is a leader in critical care and BREd will expand this expertise to become a leader in brain recovery.
