Brain Injury Toolkit
Delaware’s Brain Injury Committee, Public Outreach and Data Development Committee members created a brain injury toolkit to provide Delawareans with brain injury access to information to provide brain injury survivors, their families, and caregivers important information.
The information contained in this Toolkit will help survivors and their families better understand common and uncommon symptoms, types of rehabilitation, testing, therapy, treatments, and the different types of medical professionals who will treat survivors.
This Brain Injury Toolkit also provides information on the different types of Self-Care, Basic Self-Care, Alternative Medicine, Crisis Hotlines and Intervention, Brain Injury Resources, Support Groups, Delaware specific resources and helpful links.
The State Council for Persons with Disabilities also moved information on Delaware’s Concussion Protection in Youth Athletic Activity Act (CPYAAA) within the Brain Injury Toolkit along with links to stories from some Delaware Survivors, Delaware Financial and Legal Resources and financial suggestions.
We hope that you find this information useful and share it with other brain injury survivors throughout Delaware.
