Resources and Services Directory for Head Injury and Other Conditions

Purpose and Use of the Directory

The intent of the Services and Resource Directory is to help individuals, families, and providers know what resources and services are available in the state of Oklahoma and how they may obtain them directly or seek referral. The need for such a document became apparent while responding to the many inquiries we have received for information related to head injury, immediate and long term services, and disability-related social and employment issues. Although the Directory was developed for persons who sustained a brain injury and their families, it is useful for persons with other conditions, persons with disabilities, and the general population. The agencies, organizations, and the broad array of health and social services citizens may need are included in the Directory. The services are organized by the phases or continuum of care that patients and families may encounter following an injury event, from prehospital to acute and rehabilitative care to the broad array of community life services.

Substantial information is devoted to specific populations, (e.g., children, Native Americans), and the organizations that provide basic health and social services to improve daily living. The accessibility and availability of services in Oklahoma vary by geographic region, resources, and the distribution of professionals and other providers. The resource needs of children 18 years and younger were highlighted in a recent follow up study of children with head injury which helped to determine need for information about special education, and transitional services to higher education and work.

Listings of state and local agencies, health facilities, and organizations included in the Directory are updated periodically. Contact information is subject to change. The Directory provides information on all aspects of care and the services that may be needed and requested by persons with traumatic brain injury and other conditions. If there are further questions after reviewing the information, please contact the Traumatic Brain Injury Program (405/271-3430). 

The Directory was funded in part by (H21MC06749) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
