Acquired brain injury - or “ABI” - refers to any damage to the brain that occurs after birth (with the exception of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, FASD). That damage can be caused by an accident or trauma, by a stroke (where blood supply to the brain is stopped by a clot or bleeding), a brain infection, by alcohol or other drugs or by diseases of the brain like Parkinson's disease.
