Our vocational rehabilitation professionals are able to administer Short Term and Long Term Disability Assessments (STD/LTD) to properly assess your clients.
The client is profiled extensively, accurately, and individually thereby empowering the individual with increased self-confidence, decision making ability, realistic goal setting, and motivation towards their future. Your client returns to work sooner and they have a higher probability of staying longer in situations that are more meaningful and satisfying.
An extensive report package is prepared for each client in a timely manner, usually within two weeks of the entire assessment process. The report includes a summary, the results from each testing component, an analysis of those results, and recommendations for employment specific to the client’s education level, geographic region, and current local job opportunities. This includes relevant National Occupational Classification Code (NOC) career information, current labour market analyses and transferable skills reports. We are also trained to give supportive, solution-focused counseling intervention to assist a person in their efforts to return to work or increase their quality of life

Our Vocational/disability evaluation includes administration of a standardized battery of tests, ideally designed to generate information regarding an examinee’s abilities to read, calculate arithmetically, reason in a number of ways, solve novel problems, use language properly, and employ cognitive abilities that could be utilized in work settings. Our investigation should also include administration of interest inventories, work personality questionnaires, and, at times, measures of upper extremity capabilities, both gross motor and fine fingertip.
The clear majority of individuals who have been injured musculoskeletal will be medically limited in terms of their exertional capabilities, and the effort in these types of cases is frequently to determine how well the individual can function in relation to data, people, and inanimate objects. At CareerStreams Resources Inc., we do far more than history taking (vocational interviewing) and so-called “transferability of skills” analysis. Standardized vocational testing can be, and is, an essential component of disability evaluation and residual employability assessment.
