(Editor: Even though this article was primarily for persons with psychiatric disabilities, the authors themselves indicate that many of their conclusions are applicable to persons with other types of disabilities. In the BID editor's estimation, that would include many persons with acquired brain injuries. As to their actual conclusions, the BID editor gives no opinion here. The BID editor merely states that these are topics that apply to people with brain injuries as well.)
