This chapter discusses the lived realities of prisoners in Australia with neurodisability and, in particular, those living with an acquired brain injury. Staff who work in prisons often lack the training and support to be effective in this space, and face daily challenges in working effectively with this growing cohort. As prisoners with neurodisability are susceptible to high rates of reoffending, this chapter discusses some of the possible reasons, and proposes ways we can respond differently to disrupt the cycle of imprisonment, recidivism, and re-imprisonment.
