BIAA Receives Grant from NIDRR to Help Children with TBI

28-Sep-2011 BIAA was recently awarded a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) to work in collaboration with Mount Sinai School of Medicine to address the mismatch in hospital data and school system data concerning the number of children with TBI and to offer policy recommendations to improve hospital to school transitions. Mount Sinai School of Medicine will conduct identification research and BIAA will draft the corresponding policy recommendations and together, the two entities will publish a policy brief. The project will begin on October 1, 2011, and will be completed within a year. Ultimately, we expect the project to lay the groundwork for future policy initiatives for children with TBI, in both the Department of Education and in Health and Human Services.
