Vocational Evaluation – Metro Area

People We Serve

This program is intended for anyone with a diagnosed disability who is unsure of their specific job goals or career direction. We assess a person’s interests and strengths and assist them in creating a plan consistent with that assessment and their own goals. This program also serves as a way to determine what specific supports or accommodations are needed for employment success.

Evaluations are conducted in a community business in line with the person’s interests. Rise’s evaluator is able to assess a person’s general work skills and behaviors as well as the specific job skills and physical demands required for a particular type of work. This also helps an individual determine if work in this field is a good fit. People are paid minimum wage while undergoing the work assessment.
