Acquired Brain Injury
Acquired brain injury (ABI) refers to any damage to the brain that occurred after birth. Common causes of ABI include accidents, stroke, lack of oxygen and degenerative neurological disease. ABI-related disability can affect cognitive, physical, emotional and independent functioning.
ABI caused by a traumatic event, such as a traffic accident or blow to the head, is referred to as traumatic brain injury.
