Abstract:
Study evaluating an independent living (IL) program designed for persons with spinal cord injuries (SCI) during their initial inpatient rehabilitation stay. For this study, 234 individuals with SCI were followed from rehabilitation admission until 1 year after their injuries. Factors such as demographic, neurologic, and psychosocial characteristics were considered as potential predictors of successful community reintegration. Implications of the findings for community reintegration are discussed.
