Work & School Reentry Programs
The Work & School Reentry Programs assist patients who are generally independent at home and desire to return to work and/or school.
Cognitive, language, physical, emotional, and interpersonal effects of brain injury can affect this process. The program assists patients by:
- Finding attainable and meaningful work or school activities
- Helping them return to their former work or school status
- Finding alternative paths, including new academic options, other paid positions, or volunteer work
Work Reentry Program
People in the Work Reentry Program are exposed first to a specially selected work experience designed to develop prework skills. Our therapists help in the selection of the work experience and also provide vital on-site monitoring. Then, we help them find and keep a paid job through the close assistance of CTN therapists at the clinic and work setting.
School Reentry Program
People in the School Re-Entry Program are assisted in returning to some form of schooling/ training, including high school, community college, a trade school or university setting. CTN therapists coordinate closely with school personnel to identify and incorporate helpful compensations and accommodations.
The Transitional Program is an intermediate program for patients who have accomplished some goals of the Home Independence Program, but are not fully ready to return to
work/school. These patients receive selected therapies from the Home Independence and Work/School Re-Entry Programs to build community skills and independence in preparation for higher education and/or paid work.
