Let’s Work Together

Every life matters. Transform one with TABIRS.

ABI is a subject requiring expert attention. Ultimately we want everything to be ok. That’s why TABIRS provides life-changing support, whatever your background.

Intake Application Process

Anyone can make a referral to TABIRS. However, we require the following information prior to bringing the request for service to our Intake Committee:

• A completed ABI Community Profile and relevant brain injury medical and consult reports must be included and submitted to the Toronto ABI Network by fax.

The Toronto ABI Network offers a single point referral service to publicly funded member agencies. Our partner organization CHIRS is a member agency of the Toronto ABI Network.

The application form can be downloaded by clicking here. You can also mail application forms on request.

TABIRS services are offered on a subsidized and fee-for-service service basis. All applicants requesting subsidy will be required to complete an income disclosure as part of the application process.

• Those accessing services with third party funding should also complete the above application form, but must forward it with the relevant medical documentation directly to TABIRS by fax, mail or email.

Once all information is submitted, we will contact you to set up a screening interview with an Intake Facilitator who will then bring the request to the TABIRS Intake Committee for review. A letter will be sent to the individual and/or referring agent with the decision of the Intake Committee. If you and/or the referring agent are dissatisfied with the decision of the Intake Committee, we will provide you with information for appeal.
