Story Behind the Curve
The Vermont Traumatic Brain Injury Program supports Vermonters with a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury, diverting or helping them return from hospitals and rehabilitation facilities to a community-based setting. This program is focused on rehabilitation and driven by participant choice, supporting individuals to achieve their optimum level of independence and to return to work. The nature and severity of injuries and disability is the biggest factor in determining if a person will graduate to independence or to ongoing long- term services.
