Post-Secondary Education Brain Injury Program Protocols as developed by the Brain Injury Network (BIN)
Article dated 9-9-09
This section discusses the Brain Injury Network recommendations for nationwide protocols for postsecondary level college programs for students with brain injuries. These protocols were developed by the Brain Injury Network in the years 2005-2006. Let us keep in mind that many people with brain injuries have very few options for rehabilitation from their injuries. One of the few available, affordable, resources for cognitive retraining, or training, is the postsecondary educational system....Therefore, we recommend the creation of nationwide protocols for all postsecondary education programs for students with brain injuries. (In fact, we espouse “national standards for college programs”.)
