The purpose of the Vocational Assessment is to objectively determine a client’s academic strengths and potential for training or retraining such as post-secondary and skills development, cognitive deficits and psychological issues that may interfere with training or employment. Secondly, aptitude and areas of work and careers the client is interested in are explored. With this information, the vocational evaluator can determine the effects of the client’s disability on present and future employment, residual employability and make recommendations to improve the client’s physical, cognitive and/or psychological functioning to enhance and/or explore possible vocational options.
Vocational Assessments include transferable skills analysis as well as achievement, aptitude, and career interest testing. These assessments are available as a stand along document or in combination with other assessments such as functional capacity evaluation (FCE) and cost of future care (CFC) plans.
