This is a time to take a holistic view of what seems like an often complex life situation and confirm the skills and interests that will make the right fit in the world of work.
A vocational evaluation is typically a daylong process. This will begin with a 60 – 90 minute interview to gather background information which includes:
- Family background
- Medical history
- Work history
- Vocational interest
Relevant Vocational Evaluation Testing
The rest of the evaluation time is tailored toward relevant testing. Tests are chosen to address an individual’s specific needs and can include:
- Achievement (Reading, Spelling, Math)
- Personality Characteristics
- Work Values
- Vocational Interests (likes/dislikes)
Following the scoring and interpretation of testing, a report is prepared to summarize the test results, also address career recommendations, and answer referral questions. A follow-up meeting with the client can occur to map out a recommended vocational plan.
