Promoting Brain Injury Survivor Self-Advocacy and Collective Advocacy
Brain Injury College Programs
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.
