Abstract

In this study, the AIMS, a measure of community integration developed fromacculturation theory, was used;to explore the various ways that people with brain injuries, a smaller cultural or minority group, are involved with the larger cultural group and to evaluate rehabilitation outcome (i.e., reintegration into the community). Specifically, the AIMS assesses whether the needs of individuals with brain injuries in a number of areas are identified and supported in a way that supports community participation. In addition, the opinions of persons with a brain injury regarding their level of community integration were compared to the opinions of individuals who knew them well. The results of this study indicate that while a large proportion ofthe participants with brain injuries were integrated in traditional areas of service delivery such as medical services, housing and social activity, their disability-related needs were not being identified and supported adequately in the areas of spirituality and productive activity.
