The 2011 edition of Brain Injury: A Resource Guide adds a new format and updates to our 2007 edition. This guide represents part of the continuing efforts of the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington to improve delivery of services to those living with brain injury and the professionals that serve them.
Our goals were to provide a resource book that would help to answer some of the common questions about brain injury, provide education about brain injury and the processes involved in recovery.
Enjoy the reference guide and use it often. We invite any suggestions for future editions.
This resource book is a starting point for learning about many of the terms and issues that face those living with a brain injury. This guide is not intended to be definitive in any area that it touches upon.
This guide is provided solely for educational purposes. It is not intended to replace or supercede legal, medical or other advice. The fountain of knowledge surrounding the topics covered in this guide are forever changing as the laws that affect the rights of those affected.
