Date Presented 4/17/2015

This study investigated the readability of international traumatic brain injury (TBI) websites. Results show that they are written at grade levels that exceed the literacy of many of those with TBI and a large portion of the general population. Suggestions to enhance readability of website and nonwebsite sources are described.
