BIAT Panel Discussion: "Parenting after brain injury"
As a part of Brain Injury Awareness Week in 2018, the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania hosted a panel discussion titled "Parenting after brain injury - implications for child safety and family violence services"
In the lead up to Brain Injury Awareness Week 2017, BIAT, in conjunction with Domin8 Designs, produced a video with Ella, a sixteen year old Tasmanian girl, and her mum, Traci-Jean, about the changes to their lives after Ella was hit in the head with a hockey ball 14 months earlier.
BIAT Awareness Raising Video
BIAT is proud to share their latest awareness raising video. The video raises awareness around a consideration to acquired brain injury (ABI) that often occurs after it is too late. It also challenges the public misconception that it requires a significant event, such as a car crash, that leads to an ABI.
