Community Support Services (CSS) involve intensive one-to-one education and training to assist a person with a brain injury to live and participate as independently as possible in home, work, and community settings of choice. Community Support Services typically focus on the development and implementation of compensatory strategies versus the retraining of cognitive skills. Specific services may include education, life skills training, assessment and instruction related to the use of assistive technology, as well as the development and implementation of strategies and techniques to help a person to function successfully in community settings. Areas targeted for Community Support Services may include household and financial management, personal care/hygiene, coping and social skills, using transportation, and other similar skills and tasks.

The eventprovided an opportunity for several state agencies and partners to meet and discuss the goals and accomplishments of Events Calendar brain injury services in Virginia. The 2009-2013 Brain Injury Action Plan was created to shape the development of a comprehensive service system for Virginians with brain injuries. It involves collaboration among persons with brain injury, family caregivers, state agencies, and community partners serving persons with brain injury throughout the Commonwealth.Tto view photos of the event and download presenter documents and presentations, visit the Brain Injury Report Out Day page. Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit The Brain Injury Services Coordination (BISC) Unit, located within the Community Based Services Division in the Richmond Central Office, manages over $6 million in programs, contracts, and federal grants that provide brain injury services throughout the Commonwealth. The BISC Unit serves as a point of contact for customers seeking general or agency-specific information about brain injury resources. BISCU also manages the Commonwealth Neurotrauma Initiative (CNI) Trust Fund, the Brain Injury Discretionary Services (BIDS) Fund, and provides staffing for the Virginia Brain Injury Council (VBIC). DRS was awarded a three-year (2006-09) federal TBI Act systems change grant, "Strengthening Our Statewide Infrastructure for Brain Injury Services (SOS:BIS)." Federal grant activities are carried out through a contract with the Brain Injury Association of Virginia, which is managed by the Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit. The BISC Unit works closely with other CBS Division programs, particularly the Community Rehabilitation Case Management Services Program, to provide comprehensive services and to resolve customer concerns regarding agency services for persons with brain injury. The BISC Unit and the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center (WWRC) Brain Injury Services Department provide support, guidance, and technical assistance to DRS field staff and agency administration regarding the rehabilitation of persons with acquired brain injury. Sponsorship funding through BISCU is available each year for a limited number of DRS and WWRC staff to receive specialized training in brain injury through workshops, courses, and conferences. The Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit works collaboratively with consumers, advocacy groups, state agencies, and other community entities to improve services and resources for Virginians with brain injury.http://www.vadrs.org/CBS/biscis.htm[11/9/2009 10:07:33 AM]

Community Support Services for People with Brain Injury DRS recognizes that deficits in non-vocational life areas may adversely affect the ability of a person with a brain injury to gain and/or maintain employment. Community Support Services (CSS) involve intensive one-to-one education and training to assist a person with a brain injury to live and participate as independently as possible in home, work, and community settings of choice. Community Support Services typically focus on the development and implementation of compensatory strategies versus the retraining of cognitive skills. Specific services may include education, life skills training, assessment and instruction related to the use of assistive technology, as well as the development and implementation of strategies and techniques to help a person to function successfully in community settings. Areas targeted for Community Support Services may include household and financial management, personal care/hygiene, coping and social skills, using transportation, and other similar skills and tasks. The Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit encourages organizations and individuals to apply for vendorship approval to provide Community Support Services to DRS customers served by the Vocational Rehabilitation Program, as well as those served by programs within the Community Based Services Division. Although Community Support Services may be paid for by a vocational rehabilitation counselor in certain situations, services are usually provided through the Brain Injury Discretionary Services Fund managed by the Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit. CSS Vendorship information and application materials are available in the DRS Forms Cabinet under "Brain Injury Services Forms." For more information, contact Patti Goodall at Patti.Goodall@drs.virginia.gov or 800-552- 5019 (voice) or 800-464-9950 (TTY).http://www.vadrs.org/CBS/biscis.htm[11/9/2009 10:07:33 AM]
    • Brain Injury Services Coordination Brain Injury State Action Plan in Virginia 2008-2012 The Virginia Brain Injury Council (VBIC), http://www.vadrs.org/vbic.asp, serves as the advisory body to a federal Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Act grant awarded to the Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS), the lead agency in Virginia for the coordination of brain injury services. A 1998-2000 federal “TBI Act Planning Grant” required DRS to develop an “action plan” to guide the development of brain injury services statewide.  DRS, in partnership with the Brain Injury Association of Virginia (BIAV) and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health Systems, developed the 2000-2005 Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Action Plan. DRS received additional funding through a TBI Act “Implementation Grant” and in Spring 2005 formed a Steering Committee to oversee the process of updating Virginias 2005 Action Plan, one of the goals of the grant. Representatives from the Virginia Brain Injury Council (VBIC), the Brain Injury Association of Virginia (BIAV), the Commonwealth Neurotrauma Initiative (CNI) Trust Fund Advisory Board, and the Virginia Alliance of Brain Injury Service Providers (VABISP) developed a work plan to carry out this important activity.  The Virginia Brain Injury Council endorsed the Steering Committee’s work plan. During 2005, DRS hosted several Brain Injury Town Meetings across the state and invited survivors, family members, professionals, and other stakeholders to participate. The Town Meeting process allowed facilitators to receive feedback on the development of "core" or foundational brain injury services; to identify and prioritize local service needs; and to share information on developing and enhancing services within a local community. DRS partnered with the Brain Injury Association of Virginia (BIAV) http://www.biav.net and with the VCU Rehabilitation Research & Training Center to conduct the Town Meetings and prepare a report of their findings. In 2007 , DRS invited Susan Vaughn, Director of Public Policy for the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators (NASHIA) to provide an overview of other states’ actions plans and councils at its January 2007 meeting. DRS also hired Ann Deaton, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist, to research, develop, and prepare a written draft of Virginias Brain Injury State Action Plan for 2008-2012. A preliminary draft and progress report on the Action Plan will be presented to the Council at its April 2007 meeting. Information on Virginias 2005 State Traumatic Brain Injury Action Plan, the Town Meeting process, and a survey for gathering information on the development of the 2008-2012 Brain Injury State Action Plan are available below. DRS invites stakeholders to submit comments by completing the survey below (due March 7, 2007) and mailing it to DRS Brain Injury & Spinal Cord Injury Services, 8004 Franklin Farms Drive, Richmond, VA 23229 or via e-mail to Patti.Gooall@drs.virginia.gov.  For assistance or to submit comments in any other format, contact Patti Goodall at Patti.Goodall@drs.virginia.gov; (804) 662-7615; (800) 552-5019 Toll Free; or (800) 464- 9950 TTY. We encourage all who are interested to participate in the process! 2007 Survey for Brain Injury State Action Plan Results of 2005 Town Meetings: Final Report (Word Document) (PDF Format) PowerPoint Presentation from the 2005 Town Meetings For further information regarding the programs and services managed by the BI/SCIS Unit, please email Patti.Goodall@drs.virginia.gov or call (804) 662-7615 or (800) 552- 5019.
