 AN ACT in relation to directing  the  commissioner  of  health  and  the

   to conduct a study of the delivery of  services  to  individuals  with
   traumatic brain injury
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature recognizes that a trau-
 matic brain injury results from a sudden blow or jolt to  the  head  and
 can present in individuals with a wide range of mild, moderate or severe
 symptoms.  Each traumatic brain injury case is unique and complex, often
 requiring supports and services to  allow  individuals  to  achieve  the
 highest  quality  of  life.  This legislation will direct a study on the
 delivery of services to New Yorkers with traumatic brain injury. Specif-
 ically, the study will evaluate the availability  and  accessibility  of
 quality  services, emerging trends, regional disparities, and the effec-
 tiveness of the administrative process for  individuals  with  traumatic
 brain  injury  who  receive  official  approvals or denials of services.
 Furthermore, the commissioner of health  and  the  commissioner  of  the
 office   for   people   with   developmental  disabilities  should  make
 suggestions to enhance New York  state's  response  to  traumatic  brain
 injuries based on the findings of this study.
   §  2. a. The commissioner of health and the commissioner of the office
 for people with developmental disabilities shall conduct a study on  the
 delivery  of  services  provided to individuals diagnosed with traumatic
 brain injury. Such services to be studied   shall include,  but  not  be
 limited to acute and sub-acute rehabilitation, counseling and behavioral
 services,  home care services, independent living skills training, envi-
 ronmental modifications, housing  opportunities,  and  any  services  or
