Summary "An injury to the brain can affect every aspect of a person's daily life, including physical abilities and psychological make-up, relationships and family roles, school and employment, recreation and leisure. In this handy reference book, health-care and legal experts from Canada and the United States guide you through the process of rehabilitation and help you learn how to live with brain injury. The advice of these professionals is complemented by the stories of two people who have survived injuries and are adjusting to their new lives."--Jacket
