August 1, 2006: Brain Injury Network (BIN) is calling for a system of regulation, review and standards nationwide for utilization in college and other post-secondary disability programs. The Brain Injury Network, a survivor-led and operated association of people with acquired brain injuries from traumatic brain injury (tbi), stroke, tumor, illness and other abi categories, is advocating for national standards for acquired brain injury programs at colleges and universities. Indeed, international standards are needed. But since the Brain Injury Network originates in California, U.S.A., we are first calling for standards to be implemented in the United States of America.... It has dawned on us that new laws are needed to protect adults with cognitive challenges who attend colleges all across the United States.

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”.)
