What is an acquired brain injury?
Acquired brain injuries (often referred to as ABI) usually occur after accidents or illnesses. They can cause difficulties similar to those associated with neurominorities such as dyslexia or ADHD. However, not all brain regions are affected, and areas such as verbal or visual abilities, good memory, strong work ethic and practical skills may be enhanced, or honed during rehabilitation.
Developing new abilities
The brain is a wonderful thing, even after an injury or accident it can develop new pathways. By learning to rely on the areas of the brain not affected, our clients develop strategies to compensate for their new difficulties as well as discover new strengths. No one person will be affected exactly in the same way, so it is always best to ask what support an individual needs.
