This case study provides an understanding of one participant’s experience using a telehealth service delivery approach to working with Project Career for academic and career support. Project Career is a five-year interprofessional demonstration project aimed to improve the academic and career success of undergraduate students who have a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The program provided the undergraduate student a combination of cognitive support technology in the form of an iPad and recommended software applications, and individualized case management services provided by a technology and employment coordinator. The participant’s case notes, direct communication with the intern, and outcome assessments were used to perform a qualitative analysis. The participant reported that he believed Project Career was an effective support service for him. However, his initial and 6-month outcome assessment scores are inconclusive regarding improvements in his academic abilities and satisfaction with academic and career attainment. Further research on the effectiveness of using a telehealth service delivery approach to working with undergraduate students with a TBI is needed.
