BIAC for Professionals
There are numerous ways a professional working in the brain injury community or working with an individual with a brain injury can get help from the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC).
HelpLine: Contact the HelpLine and speak with a Certified Brain Injury Specialist who can provide individualized support, guidance and resources. Substance abuse treatment providers looking for brain injury resources; hospital care coordinators creating discharge plans; educators with questions regarding learning after a brain injury; state agency personnel and coaches looking for specific concussion resources are all examples of the types of professionals that utilize the HelpLine and receive assistance.
Providers Council: All BIAC Members at the Business/Professional level have the option of joining Providers Council. Providers Council members meet bi-monthly with other professionals to come together around issues important to organizations serving individuals with brain injury in Connecticut.
