ASSBI - Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment

Working together to improve the lives of people with brain impairment

What is ASSBI?

ASSBI is a multidisciplinary society dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with brain impairment and their families. Our mission is to:

  • Enable all disciplines who work with people with brain impairment to meet, learn and discuss the latest clinical research initiatives in a scholarly environment;
  • Provide high quality continuing education;
  • Publish scholarly research via our journal Brain Impairment;
  • Promote scientific rigour and evidence-based practice in the field of brain impairment;
  • Encourage students to present, share and publish their work; and
  • Provide high quality assessment and treatment resources via ASSBI Resources

History of ASSBI

Looking back to looking forward ... The early years of ASSBI owe a significant debt to the leadership of the foundation President Dr Kevin Walsh, who is fondly and rightfully acknowledged as the founding father of Australian neuropsychology. 

ASSBI Committees

ASSBI has a number of committees that work tirelessly to bring you the latest developments on brain impairment.
