American Indians/Native Alaskans with Traumatic Brain Injury: Examining the Impairments of Traumatic Brain Injury, Disparities in Service Provision, and Employment Outcomes
Whitfield, Harold Wayne; Lloyd, Rosalind
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v51 n3 p190-192 2008
The researchers analyzed data from fiscal year 2006 and found that American Indians/Native Alaskans (AI/NA) with traumatic brain injury experienced similar functional limitations at application as did non-AI/NA. Fewer funds were expended on purchased services for AI/NA than for non-AI/NA. The wages of AI/NA were equitable to those of non-AI/NA at case closure. AI/NA spent less time in the federal--state vocational rehabilitation program than did non-AI/NA. There were no significant differences in educational attainment at case closure for AI/NA and non-AI/NA.
