Vocational rehabilitation addresses the physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative and behavioral changes related to a brain injury that can affect job readiness and employment. These workbooks help therapists, clinicians, vocational counselors, as well as survivors and family members, recognize and address the challenges of working with a neurological impairment.
