Brain injury can affect a person in many ways extending from physical limitations to changes in perception and cognition. Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is an all-encompassing term for damage to the brain and it is common for an injury to have profound affect in neurological processing. This can adversely affect the way a person functions in their activities of daily living. Examples are speech issues and physical changes such as impaired motor function. The visual system is often involved, as well. An ABI can also be a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) caused by external force to the head. Examples are a motor vehicle accident, a fall, or contact sports. It can be the result of a medical condition such as stroke, tumor, aneurism, meningitis and cerebral palsy, or other neurological insults.
