What is ABI

Many parts of the brain are used for communication. Some help you understand what others are saying or writing, and others form your own thoughts into speech or other forms of communication. Injuring any of these parts may make communication on many levels difficult.

Individuals with an ABI have incurred their injury due to trauma or illness, such as from a car crash, sports injury, or fall. Many brain injuries are also acquired as a result of a stroke, tumour, aneurism, surgery, or any other trauma to the brain.

Following an acquired brain injury (ABI), a speech-language pathologist (S-LP) is the professional to turn to, to assess all aspects of the person’s communication profile. Speech-Language pathologists are experts in communication and trained to identify the most subtle communication deficits that may occur following an ABI.
It’s sometimes difficult to know if a client is experiencing communication issues post-accident. These are some red flags to look out for. In most cases patients were able to use these skills before the accident.

Where we work

We have a large team of Speech-language Pathologist (S-LPs) who can travel and work with clients where they are most comfortable. We also have a number of locations across the GTA and Ottawa where we can offer in-office treatment.

We employ S-LPs who are able to communicate in a variety of languages. Call our office to inquire if you require services in a language other than English.

The team at The Speech Therapy Centres of Canada is committed to helping Ontario residents who have experienced acquired brain injury. If you or your family member has experienced an ABI and you are experiencing communication challenges, we encourage you to connect with us. We are committed to helping ABI survivors experience their best life possible.
