Vocational evaluation is a process during which participants try out work tasks and participate in various tests to learn about their vocational strengths, weaknesses, and interests. Participants receive career counseling on realistic job goals and leave the evaluation with recommendations of the steps they should take to achieve these goals. Evaluations are conducted by Certified Vocational Evaluators (CVE's) who also hold Certified Rehabilitation Counseling credentials (CRC).
Community living assessments help participants and their families determine the best living situation for a participant and independent living areas to continues building skills in. Recommendations address a variety of issues that may include housing options, community resources, transition planning, and remedial skill development. Assessments can take place at SVRI, at the participant's current residence, or within the community.
A driving simulator provides an opportunity for individuals to safely practice skills necessary for driving. Many types of situations are available to allow individuals to apply their knowledge in a realistic, but simulated, environment. This allows SVRI staff to evaluate a potential driver's strengths and weaknesses and provide recommendations. The driving simulator training can be individualized and ranges from basic to advanced.
