A client with a Traumatic Brain Injury, with the assistance of his ILCSC Case Manager, obtained a position as an Electronic Associate…just a few years after experiencing his accident. He was very excited about working again and interacting with the public as a professional. This opportunity helped him assess his capabilities, and to put into perspective his goals and support in determining suitable employment in the future.

“I gained many new skills to help me live independently. I am now working and have a very full life.”


I have learned how to do resumes, thank you letters, how to prepare for job interviews, and job readiness. How to be independent.”


I am more ready for the workforce, than I ever have been. I have gained a lot of confidence about me.
