Brain Injury SA is coming to Port Lincoln to run the eRTP.

This is a free group program for people with acquired brain injury (ABI).
Sponsored by the Motor Accident Commission, the eRTP is open to those whose ABI resulted from a motor vehicle accident or other road trauma.

Facilitated by registered psychologist Ed Weaver, the eRTP provides people with the opportunity to learn more about ABI, discuss their experiences and challenges, connect with others in the community, and put in place strategies for the future.

The eRTP includes such topics as:

Understanding the brain, Exploring the challenges of ABI, Emotional wellbeing & building resilience, Interpersonal relationships and Planning for the future & goal setting.

Information Session: External Merits Review

Following the eRTP program Brain Injury SA will hold a 1.5hr information session on the External Merits Review support component of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as well as National Disability Advocacy Program. This session will provide information on the review process for participants on a NDIA plan or registered with the NDIA, as well as information relevant to the brain injury community and advocacy support.

This part of the program is open to people with any disability, service providers, carers or family members. It will be relevant to people who need advocacy or support in regards to the NDIS, or people with brain injury who need support from an advocate.
