BIAA HOME : LIVING WITH BRAIN INJURY : RESOURCES

Resources

"Brain injury can last a lifetime, but it doesn’t have to cost a lifetime."
…. Anonymous person with a brain injury…

 

Living with a brain injury can require a range of resources, strategies and supports. The range of possible supports can be tremendous. This page hopes to offer links to articles and information about the supports and resources that are available to people with brain injury and their families to assist them.   

Below is a list of common issues that can arise, with links to publications and/or other website with useful information. If you know of additional information or resources, or find something missing, please feel free to contact us to let us know.  Also look in the BIAA Marketplace for additional resources, including personal accounts, webinars and more.
