Free Webinar on Social Security Disability

The Brain Injury Association of America will be hosting a free webinar titled “Understanding Social Security Disability” on Thursday, October 9th at 2 pm CDT.  As a great many brain injury survivors face temporary or even permanent loss of the ability to work following an injury, it’s extremely common for survivors to apply for Disability.  The Social Security Disability process can be long and confusing, so this webinar is a great opportunity to learn about the rules and expectations encountered when navigating this process.

Brain Injury as a Chronic Disease

There is a movement in the Brain Injury community to change the popular conceptualization of brain injuries.  Rather than a  brain injury being viewed as  a one-time event, this movement puts forth the assertion that it should be understood as a chronic disease.  The link below will take you to the position paper from the Brain Injury Association advocating for this change in public perception.  It was authored by the Medical Director of the Transitional Learning Center, Dr. Brent Masel.
