Rebuilding Stamina Case Study

Steven* (name has been changed for confidentiality) was first referred to Greenleaf to determine whether he was ready to return to work following a back injury and several years off of work. His pain prevented him from doing the type of work he had previously, and assessment was required to determine what he would be capable of doing. After an initial assessment, the Job Coach determined that Steven would benefit from a Gradual Return to Work Plan in a different work setting to assist him in developing physical stamina. At the end of his assessment, Steven was feeling confident but required some additional time to develop stamina. He participated in a Work Adjustment program, and he entered Job Development to look for competitive employment. Steven experienced a medical setback and started experiencing pain related to his previous injuries again. He re-entered a Work Adjustment program to rebuild the stamina he had previously achieved, and Job Development was put on hold while he took that necessary time. After rebuilding his stamina, he entered Job Development again. Within his first month of looking for competitive employment with the support of a Job Developer, Steven was offered not one but two positions! He received the assistance of a Job Coach to make sure he would be successful in his new position, and he is happily employed!
