Abstract:
Study examined the impact of age on neuropsychological functioning and vocational rehabilitation (VR) outcomes in a sample of individuals who had sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Seventy-eight adults with TBI were followed from VR enrollment to case closure. Participants were divided into 3 age groups of approximately equal size: under 30, 30 to 44, and 45 and older. Group differences in neurological test data and data regarding vocational placement were analyzed. Results showed age-related differences for a measure of mental flexibility, isolated demographic characteristics, and 1 VR service category. There were no age-related differences in vocational outcome.
