If you or someone you know has a TBI, we can provide: • information and referral • advocacy • legal representation
Here are some examples of the types of problems we may be able to assist on:
- You are being discriminated against because of a TBI.
- Your child had a brain injury, and is not doing well at school. Schools are required to identify children who are eligible for special education, and to provide special education to children who need an individualized education. Some children with TBI who are eligible for special education do not receive it. Other children with TBI receive special education, but do not receive appropriate services.
- You are having difficulty finding or keeping a job because of a TBI.
- You were denied Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Aid to the Permanently and Totally Disabled, or other Public Benefits.
- You require housing, assistive technology or other types of service to live more independently or in the community.
- You (or someone you know) is in prison, jail, or other facility and you are not getting medical or other services you need due to your TBI.
Adult Service Coordinators at MDS work with individuals and their families to:
- -Create an environment that empowers individuals to speak out for themselves and receive the highest quality services available;
- -Search for opportunities, connections and ways to make the seemingly impossible probable;
- -Offer information, explore options and network with others;
- -Increase community awareness of the talents and gifts those with disabilities can offer.
