Brain injury information

We have organised our information as a series of steps.

If you're new to acquired brain injury, the best place to start is the 'about acquired brain injury' section. It includes the basics about what a child and their family might be experiencing. If you'd like information specific to a child's circumstances, you can click on the stage below that best describes their place in the journey. Don't worry about missing out on the more general information when you click on an individual stage - you will be able to access it all as you go along.
