About ABI

As a general overview, acquired brain injury, or ABI, refers to any injury or damage to the brain that occurs after birth.

This injury or damage can greatly - and permanently - affect the way a person thinks, feels and behaves.

Effects of ABI

The outcomes and effects of ABI are different for each person and often depend on the cause, nature and severity of the injury. Some effects of brain injury are only experienced in the short term, but many permanently impact on the person’s ability to lead an independent life.
