BIA-MA has a new library of books, DVDs, CDs, cassette tapes and other interactive materials in its Westborough office.

Individuals can also access various interactive materials including Descripto-Cards for Functional Language and Cognition or Adult Aphasia, a Critical Thinking Kit for Activities of Daily Living and Communication, and a Survivors and Veterans Tool Kit.

Multiple copies of conference manuals as well as research articles make it easy to find information on coping mechanisms, scientific advancements and new therapies including Survivor & Family Education Coordinator Liaison Barbara Webster's popular book, Lost & Found: A Survivor's Guide for Reconstructing Life After a Brain Injury.
