If you know of a website about TBI that isn't listed here and you've found to be helpful,

Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA)

The BIAA was founded in 1980 and is dedicated to serving individuals and families dealing
with TBI and educating the public about the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury.  Their site is
huge and takes a while to wade through, but it has a lot of useful information.  They also
have local chapters and support groups throughout the country.  If you want to receive
printed information (pamphlets, etc) about TBI, you can also call them at 800-444-6443.  
I've found their staff to be incredibly kind and helpful!

The FYI on TBI

This is a blog written by the wife of an OIF Veteran (and friend of FOV) about the
day-to-day adventures of living with a Veteran who has Traumatic Brain Injury.  It is a great
resource, not only for information, but also for those times when you'd like to reassure
yourself that you're not the "only one" dealing with TBI.

This site is run by a group of lawyers trying to reach out to those who may file lawsuits
related to TBI.  However, it is very a good resource for detailed information about
Traumatic Brain Injury.  Sections include: Understanding TBI, Symptoms of TBI, Treatments
for TBI, Prevention, Resources, Funding Resources, and a Video Library.

The Traumatic Brain Injury Survival Guide

This is an online book, written by Dr. Glen Johnson who is a Clinical Neuropsychologist.  It
is extensive and has recommendations for dealing with many of the common symptoms of
TBI.  It gets our resounding "thumbs up" as a great, really helpful resource!  It is completely
free to access, however, Dr. Johnson does ask that those who find it worthwhile send a
small ($2 - $5) donation to help support the website.

The Brain Injury Recovery Network

This site has a similar view to ours... that people must be given practical advice about
dealing with challenges.  It has a lot of information about coping, treatments, stories of
recovery, and more.  It's a
very good site!

Traumatic Brain Injury National Resource Center

This site has a good bit of useful information.  Be sure to check out the "Article Reprints"
section which includes several articles with tips and techniques for dealing with Brain Injury.

Information about TBI from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

A lot of the information listed on this site is a little dry and clinical, but it provides a good
overview of Traumatic Brain Injury along with information about treatments, ongoing
research, and other resources.

Wikipedia's Article on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

This article is pretty technical, but has several good visuals and is packed with statistics.  
Whoever wrote it really took a lot of time to thoroughly cover the "ins and outs" of TBI.

Traumatic Bain Injury Guide from

Contains a detailed explanation of the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).
