Brain Injuries Change the Person


Today is Brain Injury Awareness Day. Each year, 2.5 million children and adults in the U.S. sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI). More than 5 million people live with a significant disability due to a TBI.

Most brain injuries are concussions with brief loss of consciousness, frequently from a fall. But 10% of concussions result in permanent symptoms including memory loss, speech difficulty, fatigue and depression.

Permanent injury to the brain changes who a person is and who they will become. Live with someone with a TBI? Keep instructions simple, be calm and vary activities to maintain interest.
