The Brain Injury Association of Texas (BIATX) is the leading association in Texas providing information, advocacy, and professional education regarding brain injury. Our membership is made up of people with brain injuries, family members and professionals. The Brain Injury Association works to connect families with local support groups. It is very important for survivors and family members to get together and see that they are not alone in their struggle to function independently in the community. Education for the public about the epidemic of brain injury and the myriad of of needs for these people is a high priority. It is critical that survivors and families know about services available to them.
BIATX takes an active role in preserving services that already exist and encouraging appropriations to end waiting lists for service programs. Finding, developing and nurturing natural alliances - such as with the Rehabiltation Council of Texas, Texas Traumatic Brain Injury Advisory Council, The Disability Policy Consortium, The Coalition of Texans with Disabilities and many others - is a constant focus of the BIATX.
