Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the leading cause of death and lifelong disability among Americans under the age of 45 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020), can happen to anyone at any time. TBI can create immediate temporary changes or lead to a lifelong process of recovery with physical, emotional, and cognitive challenges. Individuals with TBI need a variety of customized services and supports to return to work. This session will provide an overview of TBI and how it happens, as well as a discussion of the types of challenges it can create personally, academically and professionally. Basic accommodations and strategies for helping individuals with TBI obtain and retain employment will be shared. There are a number of resources available to help, and guidance on accessing them will be provided to support both the individual seeking employment as well as state and community providers assisting them.
