Brain Injury Alliance of South Dakota
Helping people who have been touched by brain injury.
A brain injury can happen to anyone at any time---no one is immune. Also, it is important to understand that every brain injury is
different. A brain injury usually will affect all areas of a person's life---not just their thinking. As a result, holistic brain injury
rehabilitation is considered a best practise.
