Vocational Evaluation and Planning

Abstract

The individual with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is perhaps the most challenging client in terms of designing an appropriate, useful, and meaningful vocational evaluation. A primary reason for this difficulty is the change in cognitive, behavioral, and physical functioning that may take place as a result of a head injury (Musante, 1983). In addition, the occupational, social, and familial aspects of the person’s life that are affected require the evaluator to be conscious of making recommendations that have long-term implications.
