Abstract:
This research provides an analysis of the relationship between demographic information and between specific vocational rehabilitation services and employment outcome in RSA consumers with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The findings suggest that these is a relationship between a consumers' race (i.e., White, Black, Hispanic, and Hawaiian), level of education, and presence of substance abuse. No relationship was identified between a consumers' gender, age, or race of Asian or American Indian consumers. When specific services of assessment, job placement, job search, and diagnosis/treatment were provided consumers were more likely to obtain employment. The specific services of job placement, job search and diagnosis/treatment also predicted consumers' employment outcome. Only three of these services, job placement, job search, and diagnosis/treatment were significantly related to consumers' weekly earnings at case closure. Diagnosis/Treatment was positively related, while job placement and job search were negatively associated.
