June 2014 edition of the ADA In Focus Webinar Series
Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
Whether returning to work after recovering from a brain injury or living with the long-term effects of a brain injury experienced years ago, individuals with a history of brain injury may require specific supports and accommodations to be successful in the workplace. This session explored common cognitive, physical and psychosocial issues experienced after brain injury and how supervisors, co-workers and those living with brain injury can implement strategies for success.
