A vocational assessment is an integral component in vocational rehabilitation. Depending on the perspective, vocational assessment has many benefits and is used for many different applicable purposes.
A vocational assessment can be used to:
- determine a person’s potential for work, the content of a vocational training program, his or her employability or ability to adapt to different work environments.
- assist an individual to make realistic job training and career choices based on their interests, abilities, aptitudes, and the realities of the job market.
- help counselors, rehabilitation professionals and employment placement specialists work more effectively with their clients.
- help trainers and instructors adapt to the needs of the person with a disability.
- help administrators use resources more wisely.
- help employers make better hiring selections.
- make recommendations about the person’s work-life!

My professional rehabilitation counseling practice is focused on helping people participate in the world around them, particularly in their own world of work.
