South Asian

general resources Traumatic Brain Injury survey

Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN) has been invited to participate in a statewide survey to learn the best ways to develop culturally appropriate information about resources and services for people with traumatic brain injury and their families in South Asian communities of New Jersey, and the best ways to make that information available. The survey is being conducted by The Elizabeth M. Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities which is part of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

We have been asked to do three things:

  1. Fill out the eight question survey at the link below if you are a South Asian or serving people within South Asian communities.
  2. Forward this email to any individuals, professionals, agencies, networks, temples, mosques, or others in the South Asian community whom you know.
  3. Forward it particularly to individuals and families in South Asian Communities whom you know who has been directly impacted by a traumatic brain injury.


The survey, only eight questions long, is completely anonymous. Individuals and families impacted by traumatic brain injury can offer to help this project by a follow up interview, but they will contact us separately per the instructions in the survey.
