Individuals, who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), may have ongoing impairments that interfere with returning to work.
These may include:
Post-Acute therapy helps to identify adaptations or accommodations they may need in order to return to their prior occupation; or help to identify that they may have difficulty performing their prior occupation safely, or in the same manner.
The Tejas Post-Acute Brain Injury Program (PABI) offers a Vocational Readiness Program to support individuals who want to return to the workforce after their TBI.
What is the Vocational Readiness Program?
The Vocational Readiness Program is a series of sessions that focus on career-readiness and potential return to the workforce. Sessions promote self-assessment given current abilities post injury, coping and compensatory strategies, understanding job rights and accommodations, updating a resume and acquiring practical skills and tools to use when searching for or returning to their place within the workforce.
Sessions are taught by both our Speech-Language Pathologist and our Certified Vocational Specialist.
The Vocational Readiness Program can be adapted for individualized plans of care to address the most appropriate courses for each person.
