CAREER & VOCATIONAL EVALUATION AND GUIDANCE
Hall | Mortimer Associates provides comprehensive assessment of an individual’s
ability to work and benefit from education and other rehabilitation services.
Assessment of vocational aptitude, functional capacity screening, employment skills,
academic achievement, career interest, work values, and personality is available.
These assessments, when combined with current and relevant research on the labor
market, wages, and rehabilitation plan services, provide a global view of an individual’s
employability and provide the basis for full development of work capacity. Determinations of earning capacity and the individual’s ability to benefit from rehabilitation services provide additional vital information regarding the impact of disability on an individual’s work capacity and needed services.
Detailed vocational rehabilitation plans include:
Recommendations for further academic, on-the-job, or vocational training.
Detailed labor market analyses to determine likelihood of job placement and employment demands/conditions.
Functional evaluations for assistive technology to determine applicable devices, training and purchases through certified vendors.
When applicable and appropriate, referrals for job placement services through private and community-based providers.
Costs of all future educational and/or vocational services.
