Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Program
This program, conducted through the West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities (WVUCED), helps assure all individuals with a traumatic brain injury who are living in the community have access to available services. With a team that includes professionals from social work and occupational therapy, the TBI program also documents unmet needs, defined as goods and services that enhance quality of life and are considered best practice, but are not available and/or are not covered or are under-covered by a commercial insurance carrier, Medicare or Medicaid.
This project will carry out objectives such as, referring at least 400 unduplicated individuals to services that are already established and/or identify services that are not available for the individual; provide screenings and evaluations to individuals with TBI; conduct sessions of training and technical assistance statewide on traumatic brain injury issues to consumers, families, service providers and state agencies to increase their skills and understanding of the effects of traumatic brain injury.
