INTRODUCTION:  This guide contains information on Brain Injury related services and programs located in your community or other communities nearby that you may want to contact to obtain services. Where possible, toll free telephone numbers, web and email addresses have been provided for your convenience.
The guide provides information on brain injury and disability related services that are available in Washington. Also included is information on federal, state, county, and local agencies. The Guide contains descriptions of services in each section and information on how to access them. 

This guide is intended for anyone with a Traumatic Brain Injury, TBI, their family and friends, or anyone who works with people with TBI in Washington State. The table of contents will help you find information quickly. This book may be used by individuals with brain injuries, family members, and friends looking for help and resources. Rehabilitation professionals may use this book to help find resources for their clients. 

Narration about most topics has been added at the beginning of each section. These narratives describe the subject covered in that section and explain why people with TBI might benefit from the services in that section.

These resources deal with some issues common to TBI. Some address the aftereffects of TBI, be they sensory, motor or neural. Others help with general consumer issues such as health, respite, and rehabilitation, in-home care, support groups, and assistive technology to name a few. 

Following are some organizations that may be useful to persons with TBI, their families, caregivers, and the professional service providers. Of course, as with any other consumer item, itís wise to remember the tremendous individuality of head injury and to realize that what may help one, or many, or even most people with TBI may not work for yourself/family member/client. But once again, if one avenue of help doesnít perform as expected, another may well "do the job".

Agencies or resources are listed in alphabetical order rather than in order of importance. 
Many direct service providers who may be in your area are not listed. The organizations listed are statewide organizations that should be able to put you in touch with service providers and other resources in your area.
