Abstract: Head injury survivors experience a variety of physical, cognitive, and emotional difficulties that create unique problems for return to work. The authors outline a systematic model of pre-vocational training, vocational evaluation, and job placement considerations that have proven effective over the years as a means of increasing placement and work longevity with traumatically brain injured clients. The model includes a comprehensive learning style assessment, work sample evaluation, domain specific training, cognitive remediation that emphasizes learning functional skills, supported employment, environmental engineering of the work site, and the use of prosthetic devices.
