Homeless Individuals | Prisoners on Death Row | Children and Teens | Military Personnel
Homeless people have high rates of SLP and TBI history. Studies have
shown that homeless persons have an elevated prevalence of schizophrenia
that ranges between 13.7% (Koegel et al. 1988)
and 25% (Susser et al. 1989). Over 40% of
homeless individuals with SLP who were treated at a university hospital
in New York had a history of premorbid TBI (Silver and McKinnon 1993).
