When an individual with a brain injury, family member, caregiver, or professional turns to the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) for assistance, that assistance is provided by a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS). The specialist's role is to offer the individualized support and guidance required to ensure that the often complex and overwhelming challenges experienced following a brain injury are handled more easily and effectively.
An individual with a brain injury, family member, caregiver, or professional may simply require the name of a specific resource. When the need is more complex, however, our Certified Brain Injury Specialists provide the guidance and support required to identify and link an individual to appropriate services and programs. Self–advocacy skills are also established as individuals with brain injuries and family members move toward their goals. Individual consultation with a Certified Brain Injury Specialist can be provided in our Windsor office by scheduling an appointment.
The resources BIAC’s Certified Brain Injury Specialists provide may include:
And most important, navigating life’s challenges after a brain injury, and offering support along the way.
