Chris Part Seven – Return to Work & Vocational Disability:

Chris worked for a shoe company before her accident. After her accident, she returned and worked there part-time for 4 years typing in ordering information, Chris was eventually fired due to problems with attendance. As is typical with many who sustain a brain injury, Chris had difficulty with time management and distractibility. She was not able to realistically plan how much time was required for various tasks and had difficulty keeping her attention focused on the task at hand (i.e., getting ready to go to work). Chris has not found employment since.
