The Brain Station Project

On the International Childhood Cancer Day (February 15), our partners from the P.A.V.E.L. Association. also officially launched the 3 volumes of the Auxiliary of non-formal activities intended for primary, secondary and high school patient students within the educational project Brain Station.

In the development of the auxiliary containing the curriculum and activity sheets necessary for the involvement of the student, a chronic patient, in non-formal didactic activities, the Brain station model was used, coordinated by Dr. Carrie Shiraki-Sakaino at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children in Hawaii, which provides a “classroom atmosphere in the educational program of the hospital. Brain Station also promotes a smooth transition from hospital school to home school. The activities/lessons are based on the pillars of cognitive rehabilitation (concentration, memory, language and executive functions), also integrating the fields of Language, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies.
