This study examines the effects of intimate-partner-violence-related acquired brain injury (IPV-related ABI) symptoms on activities of daily living (ADLs) and social relationships. Thirty-seven survivors ages 17–73 years were evaluated within 30 days of brain injury. Post-IPV-related ABI cognitive symptoms predicted difficulties in ADLs and interpersonal relationships. Identifying the impact of specific symptoms on ADLs may result in targeted OT interventions with IPV-related ABI survivors.
