"Rehabilitation," as a term in and of itself, implies a goal of bringing something back to its original state of being. However, for many people living with traumatic brain injury (TBI), rehabilitation means learning to live all over again. Seldom is one's post-traumatic, new state of being the same as one once knew, but rather what one discovers through experimentation and on-going support. Through means of education and employment, this article will explore individuals' with TBI quest for inclusive community integration- supports and services that enable a person with disabilities to live in and participate in his or her community, instead of being confined to a medical facility. It will also cover progressive steps that lead to successful career-based outcomes: higher education, vocational training, employment preparation, family involvement, and personal acceptance. In regards to higher education, vocational training, employment preparation, and job placement/selection, details such as resources, employer adaptability and public awareness are recognized as important factors in attaining these outcomes, along with the nature and severity of the injury. Also, personal creativity, resilience and determination are important success factors.
