Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) – what is it?
Acquired brain injury refers to any type of brain damage that happens after birth. Causes of ABI include disease, blows to the head, alcohol and drug use, or oxygen deprivation.
ABI does not entail damage to the brain resulting from neurodegenerative disorders.
Coping with the outcomes of acquired brain injury can be challenging for everyone, including family members.
