VIRTUAL VOCATIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS
Many of the same Vocational and Psychological Evaluation services we offer for clients are now available online. We can host real time client interviews and proctored academic, IQ, and vocational interest testing via the web. All testing instruments are normed for a remote testing environment.
Vocational Evaluations are a one or two-day assessment customized to assess a student’s skills, aptitude, and interests to determine possible career paths and relevant post-secondary training options.
Generally, the Vocational Evaluation determines these results by using information such as the student’s;
- Living situation
- Employment status and history
- Availability of transportation
- Medical history
- Abilities and limitations
Psychological Evaluations are administered by a State of Florida Licensed Psychologist and can identify strengths and weaknesses in the areas of cognitive, behavioral, and social/emotional/developmental functioning to help guide recommendations for appropriate academic goals and/or work settings.
During these evaluations, customers and evaluators are able to see and interact with each other through online teleconferencing system, making it essentially the same experience as the face-to-face evaluation.
