New and Improved
Revised and updated to inform and reassure
ABI The Facts is now updated to reflect the latest clinical knowledge and feedback from our community. It draws on clinical knowledge and personal experiences to provide support through challenging times. This resource is a ‘must-have’ practical guide for anyone recently diagnosed or living with brain injury.
Nobody is prepared for brain injury, but many have walked this path before you. Their experiences – the things they learned, and the things they wish they’d known – form the basis of ABI The Facts. It’s the essential handbook for anyone impacted by brain injury. Laid out in a logical order, to help you get to grips with what you’re experiencing now and understand what may lie ahead.
This easy-to-read document lays out the brain injury journey from hospital to home – and from there, everything from employment to relationships, personality changes to assistive technologies. A comprehensive, but accessible, document designed to support people with brain injury and their families as they get to grips with their ‘new normal’.
The production of ABI The Facts has been partially funded by generous donations from families around Australia that wish to see others better informed about brain injury. Their generosity ensures this resource makes its way to those who need it most as they navigate the many challenges of life impacted by brain injury.
