Successful community reintegration to school, employment or other meaningful activity is facilitated through evaluation and treatment. Vocational evaluations are individualized assessments of a person’s ability to perform a job with or without reasonable accommodations.
Each evaluation consists of the following:
review of medical records
written tests and work samples
analysis of test results
ratings of workers characteristics
Vocational recommendations are specific and include a list of realistic vocational options. Recommendations are based on what is needed to achieve a goal and may include the following services or referrals: medical coordination, psychological counseling, neuropsychological testing, occupational and physical therapy services, Speech and Language Pathology services, medical equipment, clarification of Social Security or retirement benefits, work hardening, functional capacities evaluations, remedial academic education, assistance with job placement, participation in Job Seeking Skills Training, job modifications, and assistive technology.
