Reference

We hope that you find the following list of references on Acquired Brain Injury to be helpful. We have used them as part of our research project and wanted to provide a starting place for individuals who want to learn more about ABI. Many of the articles focus on ABI from an educational standpoint and almost all focus on ABI as it occurs in individuals who are school aged (approximately 5 years of age to 21 years of age). There are some good review articles as well as some articles that provide neurological basics. If you are aware of any articles that are not on our list that you have found helpful or interesting please let us know. You may also contact us at ontf@cogito.psyc.brocku.ca if you are having difficulty locating any of the articles.
