Preteens, teens, young adults are navigating a new path for themselves. These tender years are fraught with pressures in school, post secondary education, career options and more. It’s a lot. Add into the mix the sudden changes from a parent, sibling, or loved one sustaining a brain injury and their world is completely turned upside down.
What is a brain injury and how will it impact my loved one? These are prominent questions. What does it mean for me and how do I fit into this new life with them? These are the questions that are asked in silence.
Fraser Valley Brain Injury Association (FVBIA) intends for the booklet The Road Ahead: Next Exit Hope! For Ages 11 and Up to help families understand the changes before them and to find the answers they need. This book may not have all the answers for you or your child, but it will guide important conversations on how brain injury affects the whole family.
Families, friends, and caregivers will find many interesting and supportive topics in our section The Journey Ahead.
