Celebrate National Rehabilitation Week
Since 1976, National Rehabilitation Awareness Week has been celebrated annually across the United States. This observance, falling on the third week of every September, promotes the value of rehabilitation, highlights the capabilities of people with disabilities, salutes the professionals who provide services to this community, and renews our commitment to meet the needs of people with disabilities. Rehabilitation helps minimize physical or cognitive disabilities and restore those affected by potentially disabling disease or traumatic injury to health and productivity. Rehabilitation is the single most effective treatment available to persons with brain injury. Why not take a moment this week to say "thanks" to your favorite rehabilitation researchers, counselors, therapists and technicians!
