This study involves research about how to help veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) gain employment. During the first couple of years following SCI many people are concentrating on many aspects of their rehabilitation and are unable to afford the time for return to work. However, studies have shown people often regain the necessary strength and function about two years after SCI to resume activities of daily living very similar to what they experienced prior to the SCI. Even though many social and legal efforts have been made in the last decade to improve chances for people with disabilities to return to work, veterans with SCI are sometimes hindered in finding employment because of age, past work history, and many other factors. Other veterans with SCI are very successful at finding employment either working for themselves or working for a company. We know very little about what issues veterans with SCI face when they attempt to find employment after SCI.
