Lidz on Kidz
Every year too many children die or suffer serious head injuries that could have been prevented if they were wearing a properly fitted and the correct helmet for the sports or activities they play. We offer education programs to elementary school children and helmet give aways.
With generous support from the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) Covid-19 Relief fund, we have initiated a project to provide survivors with much needed technology assistance. Our Brain Connect program will support our members in the Waterloo Region to utilize technology to enhance their lifestyle and rehabilitation journey.
Survivor and Caregiver Monthly Support Meetings
Join us at our monthly support meetings to meet others who are are on the Brain Injury recovery path just like you! The meetings are FREE and open to anyone who has sustained a brain injury or who is supporting a brain injury survivor.
Peer Support Program
Through the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA), we are launching a new support program matching experienced survivors (Mentors) with others who are just starting their recovery journey (Partners). This will be an especially important program for those who cannot travel to join one of the support group meetings.
We have a number of programs to support caregivers. The Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) offers a number of virtual programs. Our Care to Share program is a support group for family members or caregivers of acquired brain injury survivors. This group is facilitated by Dr. Steven Jett Ph.D, C.Psych. Dr. Jett is a Clinical Phychologist who specializes in clients with ABI.
Unmasking Brain Injury
To increase the awareness of brain injuries, BIAWW ABI survivors have made masks that illustrate what it’s like to live with brain injury! The masks are on display across our regions with the goal of increasing awareness.
