How we help Get information Encephalitis in children Encephalitis in children. E-learning The e-learning programme aims to improve the knowledge about encephalitis and its consequences and so enabling children and their families to make sense of what has happened to them and know what to expect in the future; to help children and their families develop coping skills and as a result improve their confidence and self-esteem; to show the parents, carers and the children how to develop supportive networks around them and so reducing their isolation. The e-learning programme has two sections. The first one, 'Parents/carers section', is aimed at all the adults who care for a child affected by encephalitis (parents, grandparents, guardians or any other carers). It contains 9 modules which focus on: the illness and its consequences, the relationships with the family, friends and professionals involved in child's health, the educational issues, how to stay healthy and how to cope with emotional strains. Module 1: What is encephalitis? Module 2: The consequences of encephalitis Module 3: Going back to school Module 4: Family dynamics Module 5: How to find out information Module 6: Working with professionals Module 7: Dealing with stress and low mood Module 8: Developing social support networks Module 9: Conveying information to family and friendsThe second section,'Children section', is aimed at all children affected by encephalitis age between 7 and 12. These age limits are not strict. If a Module is appropriate or not, depends very much on the learning and developmental stages of a child. This section has seven modules which have been built around Gilley's experience of encephalitis. Gilley the Giraffe will guide the child and teach them what is encephalitis, how to stay friends, how to be good with their family and how to look after themselves. Module 1: What is encephalitis? Module 2: What happens after encephalitis Module 3: Why me? Module 4: Understanding my family Module 5: My friends Module 6: When things go wrong Module 7: How can I help myself?
