Education

You're browsing sites in the "Education" topic.

Many people with SCI decide to pursue further education after their injury because after all, higher education can lead to more gainful employment! We have included comprehensive resources as well as online learning opportunities and websites that give you all kinds of information about receiving financial aid. Also in this section are educational links for parents of children who have SCI. Our Review Team felt that most of these sites are not good if you are newly injured because it takes a little time to adjust before you may be ready for school. We know there are more sites out there, but will rely on you to help us, so if you know of any good ones, please be sure to Recommend a New Site and let us know about them.
