Helping children affected by stroke

Children and their families can get help coping with the trauma of childhood stroke thanks to the publication of a new child friendly book and animations.

Evelina London Children’s Hospital and the Stroke Association have created the first dedicated resources to explain stroke in childhood to children. They have been designed with the input of children affected by the condition and their families.

Stroke is usually thought of as a condition affecting older adults, but around 400 childhood strokes occur in the UK each year – more than one a day – leaving families shocked and confused.
