Abstract

Individuals with traumatic brain injuries experience an array of physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that often make return to preinjury employment unlikely and locating new employment difficult. The authors review the literature related to the return to work for persons with traumatic brain injuries. This includes return to work outcomes, factors influencing return to work, and vocational programs that enhance employment, including a supported employment approach. Guidelines for professionals engaged in supported employment practices are also provided.
