iHOPE - International Academy of Hope
The International Academy of Hope (iHOPE) is a highly specialized brain injury school in New York City. It meets a significant and unmet need in the NYC community, while also serving as a world-class model of best practices and high tech solutions in the delivery of educational brain injury services.
iHOPE specializes in supporting students with pediatric acquired brain injury (PABI). PABI is caused either by trauma (such as motor vehicle crashes, sports-related concussions, blast injury, assaults/child abuse, gunshot wounds, and falls) or non-trauma (such as strokes, meningitis, brain tumors, anoxia, infection, seizures, inflammation, toxins, substance abuse, and metabolic disorders). PABI includes injuries sustained from birth through 25 years of age.
