Comprehensive Vocaltional Evaluation (CVE) services provide an individualized, timely, and systematic process by which a person seeking employment, in partnership with an evaluator, learns to identify viable vocational options and develop employment goals and objectives. A CVE will include a pre-evaluation assessment of assistive technology needs, functional performance inventory, interview, psychometric testing, personality testing, interest inventories, and other appropriate evaluation tests, depending on the individual.
A Limited Vocational Evaluation (LVE) is a method of assessing an individual’s aptitudes, interests, and academic levels to develop realistic vocational goals and training objectives. It is specifically designed for a client who has a vocational goal and the counselor would like to know if their goal is appropriate and realistic.
The Evaluation may include:
The purpose of Psychological Evaluations is to obtain and document information regarding a client’s current level of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. They provide information that complements the CVE and offers recommendations regarding accommodations which may benefit a client’s ability to succeed in school and/or work.
The Evaluation may include:
We provide adult clients with the tools that they need to acquire jobs that are a match for their individual interests, skills, and abilities. We strive to help clients determine what job accommodations and/or modifications they may need and empower them with the skills to advocate for their needs when communicating with employers and coworkers. Clients can expect us to create individualized plans to target both independent living skills and successful work behaviors. To achieve individual goals, we utilize Personal/Social Adjustment Training (PSAT) services which are services that are designed to develop or re-establish personal and social behaviors and to enhance an individual’s employability. The services are instructional and can be provided individually or in small groups. They are individualized and specifically designed to identify and reduce the barriers to employment for clients so that they can successfully gain and maintain employment. In addition to teaching skills, PSAT services show clients how to apply these skills in real world environments.
Some of the services provided include:
Our groups follow the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) for Young Adults (Ages 18-35). PEERS is a 16-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated young adults, who are interested in learning skills to make and keep friends and develop romantic relationships. During each group session, young adults are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills.
*Young adults must attend each session with a social coach (i.e., parent, family member, adult sibling, life coach, job coach, peer mentor, etc.). Social coaches are taught how to assist young adults in making and keeping friends by providing feedback during weekly socialization homework assignments.
Vocational Services include resume building, cover letter, applying for jobs, and interviewing skills. They are intended to help clients get, keep, and excel at a new job.
