Brain injury is unpredictable in its consequences. Brain injury affects who we are and the way we think, act, and feel. It can change everything about us in a matter of seconds. The most important things to remember are:

  • A person with a brain injury is a person first.

  • No two brain injuries are exactly the same.

  • The effects of a brain injury are complex and vary greatly from person to person.

  • The effects of a brain injury depend on such factors as cause, location, and severity.
