ABI Identification Card

BIAT can provide an identification card to people with an acquired brain injury and/or epilepsy. The card identifies areas where the person may experience difficulty/difficulties i.e. speech, memory etc. and a nominated contact person.


Heads Up 2 Brain Injury

BIAT facilitates and runs the Heads Up 2 Brain Injury (HU2BI) program, an interactive learning experience for students with the goal of influencing their behaviour and attitudes to reduce their chances of sustaining a brain injury.
