A few months ago, I posted an interview I did with Patrick Donohue, whose daughter Sarah Jane suffered a traumatic brain injury at the hands of her baby nurse when she was only five days old. Patrick shared the work that he’s done establishing treatment guidelines for kids with PABI (Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury) – and his most recent effort establishing a school for the these children in New York City called the International Academy of Hope (or iHope).
Teaching kids with brain injuries sounds like a tough job – and, no doubt, it is. But the staff of iHope treat it as if it were a blessing. That’s a profound message in a society that doesn’t always lift up the weak and vulnerable. Watch the people of iHope at work.
