  • Cognition, information processing, reasoning, abstract thinking, judgment, and/or problem solving
  • Language and/or speech
  • Memory and/or attention
  • Sensory, perceptual, and/or motor abilities

ABI does not apply to functional limitations resulting from brain trauma induced by birth, present at birth, or which is progressive and/or degenerative in nature.
